Russia Vows to Block Any UN Resolution on Sanctions Against Iran
MOSCOW (Sputnik) The UN Security Council committee which oversees the implementation of UN's sanctions against Iran will automatically be dissolved after the nuclear deal comes into force, a high-ranking source in the Russian Foreign Ministry said Wednesday.

"When the resolution enters into force 90 days after its adoption, the committee will be terminated automatically," the source told RIA Novosti.

The source added that after this, all questions related to the implementation of the resolution, the lifting of sanctions and solving arms supply issues would be addressed by the Security Council, with the recommendations of a joint committee that includes Iran and the P5+1 group of countries.

The P5+1 group of negotiators, consisting of Russia, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, China and Germany, reached a landmark final nuclear agreement with Iran on July 14.

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) gradually lifts nuclear technology and conventional weapons-related sanctions in exchange for Iran reducing its uranium stockpiles and cutting the number of centrifuges. Tehran also agrees to IAEA verification of its nuclear sites.

Six days after JCPOA's adoption, the UN Security Council voted unanimously to approve the resolution incorporating it into international law and terminating anti-Iran sanctions, but maintaining an arms embargo and a ballistic missile technology ban, within a 90-day period.
