Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Legal and International Affairs Gholam Hossein Dehqani rapped the UN Security Council for adopting a double-standard approach towards different regional and international issues.

RNA - Dehqani made the remarks in a meeting with Director-General for Multilateral Affairs of the Belgian Foreign Ministry Axel Kenes, whose country is a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council, in Tehran on Wednesday.

During the meeting, Dehqani criticized the UNSC for its Secretariat's reports on implementation of Resolution 2231 that has been released without showing any attention to the US repeated violations of the nuclear deal and the resolution, and stressed the need and importance of the opposition of the UNSC member states to the US unilateralism and instrumental use of the UN bodies.

He also referred to the UNSC's unilateral approach on issues like Yemen and its insufficient attention to the humanitarian dimensions of such crises, calling on Belgium as a non-permanent member of the UNSC to make more efforts to resolve them peacefully.

Resolution 2231 was a resolution endorsing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on the nuclear program of Iran. It sets out an inspection process and schedule while also preparing for the removal of United Nations sanctions against Iran.

According to Fars News Agency, Washington withdrew from the internationally-endorsed 2015 nuclear deal with Iran on May 2018, re-imposed the toughest-ever sanctions against the country and started a plan to zero down Tehran's oil sales.

Under the nuclear agreement reached between Iran and six world powers in July 2015, Tehran undertook to put limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of nuclear-related sanctions.
