Russia's Lavrov: Iran nuclear deal can not survive if U.S. pulls out

Russian Federation will not join the world's first nuclear disarmament deal, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at a UN Security Council meeting on Thursday.

Lavrov also denounced the US' stance vis-a vis the nuclear agreement as politically-motivated, saying the deal can not be abandoned "for the benefit of political agendas of certain countries".

US President Donald Trump said a week ago that if the "disastrous flaws" of the 2015 global agreement to curb Iran's nuclear program were not fixed within 120 days then Washington would withdraw. "It would not be acceptable for Iran and it is clear now, I believe, that the Europeans do understand this danger right now", Lavrov said.

Iran and six world powers, including the U.S., UK, France, Russia, China and Germany, struck the nuclear deal, also called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, on July 14, 2015.

Russian Federation will make every effort to persuade the United States "not to touch this thing", said Lavrov, saying that the deal was "not dead yet".

Israel destroyed a mile-long tunnel that stretched from Gaza under Israel and into Egypt on Saturday night. Underground passageways were a distinct advantage for Hamas in the 2014 armed conflict with Israel.

If the Iranian nuclear deal is not upheld, "how can we ask North Korea to use the same option" and abandon its nuclear ambitions, asked Lavrov.

Speaking at a UN Security Council meeting, Lavrov noted that "we proceed from the fact that the total elimination of nuclear weapons is possible only in the context of general and complete disarmament, in conditions of ensuring equal and indivisible security for all, including those who possess nuclear weapons, as stipulated in the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPTW)".

Concerns regarding the implementation of the nuclear deal should be addressed "through the mechanisms established by the agreement", Guterres said in the statement marking two years since the accord went into force.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has repeatedly verified Iran's adherence to the terms of the JCPOA since January 2016, when the deal took effect.
