Nuclear States Unwilling to Live up to Disarmament Commitments: Iran Envoy

Al-Manar – October 29, 2021

Iran’s permanent Ambassador to the United Nations Majid Takht-Ravanchi slammed the states and regimes who hold nuclear weapons while seek justifications for not abiding by their commitments.

Takht-Ravanchi made the comments after the UN Disarmament and International Security (First Committee) approved the resolution presented by Iran on Thursday, according to IRIB.

“Unfortunately, nuclear weapons holders are unwilling to live up to their nuclear disarmament commitments and only try to justify that the necessary ground is not ready for nuclear disarmament,” the Iranian envoy said, as quoted by Mehr news agency.

He said that their justification cannot be bought and added, “They committed themselves to nuclear disarmament in 1970, and this is not justifiable.”

The Islamic Republic of Iran proposed a resolution the follow-up on the implementation of the agreements reached at the NPT Review Conferences of 1995, 2000 and 2010″, and was adopted with the support of a majority of the members of the UN Disarmament and International Security (First Committee).

In part of the resolution proposed by Iran, the implementation of the decision of the NPT Review Conference in 1995 to establish a nuclear-weapon-free Middle East is emphasized. The decision calls on Israeli regime to join the NPT and accept the International Atomic Energy Agency’s monitoring of its nuclear facilities.

  1. Good for Iran. I might hope that Amb. Takht-Ravanchi took the opportunity to push for the expeditious implementation of the UN Treaty that took effect this (? late January?) toward international “elimination of all nuclear weaponry.” Last I checked, it had been signed by 137 UN member nations, and of course the US and scofflaw Zioentity were among the non-signers. (And also of course, I think none of the other nuke-weapon holders have signed it either….)

  2. None of the Nuclear States will EVER give up their weapons. And Iran knows that it must develop Nuclear Weapons, just to survive in the future(just like Nth Korea has done)
    In international forums, states with no nuclear weapons will be bullied by those who do. And, the United Nations is just a side show

    • Brian, a bit of amusement. My cloudy eyes initially read your “side show” as “slide show.” Either word group would work, no?!

      • I gotcha(that’s an Australian word meaning I understand) The UN is a waste of time and money. The Security Council regularly over ride the General Assembly, and ignore what the rest of the World thinks.
        It’s a club, for the Big Boys(including Israel, who have Nukes, but will never admit it).
