One-Year Anniversary of Ground-Breaking Diplomatic Agreement

Last week the United Nations Secretary-General, Ban Ki-Moon welcomed the first anniversary of Iran’s Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and the progress made towards its implementation. In accordance with this agreement, which was signed last year, Iran pledged that it will not seek, develop or acquire nuclear weapons. The deal has been seen as a triumph for conflict resolution, diplomacy, and the global norms of nuclear non-proliferation, as the Secretary-General stated in his remarks: ‘One year on, I remain certain that the JCPOA is the best way to ensure the exclusively peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear programme and to realize the great aspirations of the Iranian people.’
