According to the UN Secretary-General, JCPOA represents a major achievement in nuclear non-proliferation and diplomacy and has contributed to regional and international peace and security. The United Nations policy has always been formed to welcome such international agreements and to try to form a suitable bed for their full implementation. Considering the unilateral withdrawal from the JCPOA by the U.S and the favorable positions of the European countries in preserving it, the role that the Secretary-General of the United Nations can play as the chief administrative officer in this regard is very important. Based on article 99 of the UN Charter, the Secretary-General is to play his role in maintaining the integrity and commitment of the United Nations to its obligations in accordance with the document and UN Security Council resolution 2231. It seems that Mr Antonio Guterres with his good record in his former role in UNHCR, can play a positive role in maintaining the JCPOA.
