INDIA STATEMENT

By

Ambassador T.S. Tirumurti,

Permanent Representative of India to the United Nations

 

 

Thank you Mr. President.

 

I would like to begin by thanking Under Secretary General Rosemary Dicarlo and Ambassador Olof Skoog, Head of the Delegation of the European Union in New York for their briefings. I would in particular like to thank Ambassador Geraldine, Facilitator for the implementation of resolution 2231 for her briefing and express appreciation for her efforts in finalizing the half-yearly report of the Facilitator.

 

2. India supports the full and effective implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and resolution 2231. We have always maintained that all JCPOA related issues should be resolved peacefully through dialogue and diplomacy and have extended our support to all such efforts which help in constructively addressing and resolving outstanding issues. All participants should adhere to their respective obligations under UNSCR 2231. We hope that the ongoing engagement will result in a positive outcome.

 

3. Let me also use this opportunity to commend the IAEA for its role and continued efforts towards ensuring the exclusively peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear programme. We urge Iran to continue to cooperate with the IAEA in the performance of its verification activities and addressing all outstanding issues.

 

4. We count on the full implementation of the JCPOA by all parties, which will serve the shared and long-term interests of all countries.

 

I thank you, Mr. President.
