Axel Kenes, the Belgian Foreign Ministry’s Director General for Multilateral Affairs and Globalisation, has met with Gholam-Hossein Dehqani, the Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Legal and International Affairs.

In the Wednesday meeting in Tehran, the two sides exchanged views on various international issues including the full implementation of the JCPOA and the UN Security Council Resolution 2231 by all parties.

Dehqani slammed the UN Secretariat’s reports on the implementation of the Security Council Resolution 2231, which ignore the United States’ repeated violations of the JCPOA and the Resolution.

He also underlined the significant role of other Security Council member states in opposition to the US’ unilateralism and instrumental use of the UN principal organs.

The Iranian diplomat also pointed to the Security Council’s one-sided approach on issues like the Yemen crisis, and its insufficient attention to the humanitarian aspects of such crises.

He urged Belgium as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council which represents all other UN member states to make further efforts to settle those crises peacefully.

Kenes, whose country acts as a facilitator of the implementation of the UN Security Council Resolution 2231, is on a two-day trip to Tehran.
