UN: May and Macron address Iran, chemical weapons at UNSC

United Nations, New York City
September 26, 2018 at 17:10 GMT +00:00 · Published

UK Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron addressed the Iranian nuclear issue, and the use of chemical weapons in Syria, at a UNSC meeting in New York City on Wednesday.

Addressing the Iran nuclear deal, Macron said "everyone around this table has the same goal, to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons and to guarantee, through a strong international supervision, the peaceful use of its (nuclear) programme. The JCPOA is not perfect, but it's a determining step towards this direction."

Macron also addressed allegations of chemical weapons use in Syria, saying "the re-emergence of chemical weapons during the offensives led by the Syrian regime, where Damascus had previously adhered to the Convention for the prohibition and declared its programme, it didn't meet the necessary resolve by this Council. Daesh has itself used their weapons in Syria and Iraq."

May also touched on the issue of chemical weapons, saying "it is my sincere hope that Russia will rejoin the international consensus against the use of chemical weapons and the collective effort to uphpold it."

"If so, this Council will again be able to work together to rid the world of chemical weapons," she added.
