Tehran, YJC. International law expert has provided comments on how a UN resolution on Iran nuclear deal would be implemented.

Behzad Saberi in interview with YJC said that a UN resolution which is to be made according to the Lausanne nuclear agreement will revoke all previous sanctions on Iran.

He said that once a resolution is adopted, it would be obligatory for all countries to adhere to it based on the UN charter.

He noted that since previous sanctions have been imposed on Tehran under chapter 7 of the charter, the new resolution would also have to be made under that chapter.

If any side of the agreement does not adhere to it, naturally the other side would also abandon adherence, so there would be no worry, he stated.

He also said that another resolution to reimpose the sanctions would also be futile, since for that to be passed the consent of Russia and China is required, which are unlikely to grant consent.

Further, he noted, the West came to the negotiation table since it understood that sanctions do not do much against Iran, so the resolution would be viable only on paper.
