Despite US opposition, UN approves Iran’s global nuclear disarmament resolution
Despite serious opposition of US and Israel, UN General Assembly here on Tuesday resolutely approved of Iran's proposal on international nuclear disarmament, IRNA reported.
According to the IRNA correspondent at the UN New York Headquarters, the Iranian representative delegation at the Disarmament and International Security Committee of the UN General Assembly presented its proposed resolution on international disarmament, which was passed with 107 positive votes, and the negative votes of only the United States, Israel and a few western allies of them.
The title of the resolution was "Pursuing Accepted Commitments of NPT Member Countries in Framework of NPT Revision Conferences in Years 1995, 2000, and 2010" which was being proposed for the fourth time during the past eight years by the Islamic Republic of Iran.
The UN resolution asks the nuclear armed countries to adopt the necessary measures to abide by their commitments regarding the full annihilation of their nuclear arsenals and nuclear weapons, transparently, irrevocably, under international supervision, and rapidly.
The nuclear armed countries after decades of ignoring their commitments on nuclear disarmament in accordance with the treaties approved in 1995, 2000, and 2010, are thus once again made obliged and committed to take effective practical measures aimed at full annihilation of their nuclear weapons.
The Islamic Republic of Iran has also proposed to the UN a resolution on usage of military and peaceful missiles used for launching satellite.
