Tehran, Iran, June 14
By Mehdi Sepahvand –- Trend:
Iran has stopped implementing the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, IRIB news agency reported June 14.
The decision was made by the Supreme National Security Council despite government’s efforts to persuade critics to vote for implementing the agenda.
Over the past week President Hassan Rouhani was being given a rough time by conservatives over his cooperation with the UN under the agenda.
Conservatives in Iran say the implementation of the agenda is betrayal of Iran’s Islamic codes and will “demoralize” the education system.
