In a report submitted to the UN Security Council, Guterres also urged the United States to “extend the exemption for oil trade with Iran and extend the exemption for nuclear non-proliferation projects across the board”.

It is reported that the 15-member Security Council will discuss Guterres’ semi-annual report on the implementation of the 2015 resolution.

The talks between the parties involved in the Comprehensive Agreement on the Iranian Nuclear Issue will be held in Vienna on April 6, 2021, to discuss the issue of the United States and Iran’s resumption of compliance. Six rounds of talks have been held so far, but there are still differences between the United States and Iran.

In July 2015, Iran reached a comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue with the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany. According to the agreement, Iran promised to limit its nuclear program and the international community lifted sanctions against Iran. In May 2018, the US government unilaterally withdrew from the Iran nuclear agreement, and subsequently restarted and added a series of sanctions against Iran. Since May 2019, Iran has gradually suspended the implementation of certain provisions of the Iran nuclear agreement, but promised that the measures taken are “reversible.”
