Rouhani: US making ‘ridiculous, childish’ efforts to trigger snapback sanctions on IranIranian President Hassan Rouhani has dismissed as ridiculous the US push to trigger a mechanism in the 2015 Iran nuclear deal that would snap back international sanctions on Tehran. Speaking at a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Rouhani said that following its “unprecedented” and “scandalous” defeat at the UN Security Council to extend an anti-Iran arms embargo that was due to expire in October through a resolution, the US resorted to the “snapback” mechanism enshrined in the Iran nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Action (JCPOA). “They thought that they could save their face in this way, and declared that they could use the [snapback] mechanism in the...

Terrorist safe havens, sanctuaries operating across Durand Line must end for peace in Afghanistan: India

India on November 20 at the United Nations (UN) said that as peace process and violence cannot go together, therefore for durable peace in Afghanistan there must be "an end to terrorist safe havens and sanctuaries operating across the Durand Line". While speaking during Arria Formula Meeting at the UN on the theme "What can the Security Council do to support the peace process in Afghanistan", TS Tirumurti, Permanent Representative of India to the United Nations urged the Security Council to speak "unequivocally against violence and terrorist forces" and act against the terrorist sanctuaries and safe-havens. He said, "Even as we meet today, fighting continues in Afghanistan in several areas across the country. Reports are coming in of civilians, including children and women, killed or injured in the violence. Terrorist attacks continue to target innocents and institutions of learning." "It is our view that peace process and violence cannot go hand in hand, and we call for immediate comprehensive ceasefire. For durable peace in Afghanistan, we have to put an end to terrorist safe havens and sanctuaries operating across the Durand Line. The report of the Analytical Support and Sanctions Monitoring Team under the Al-Qaeda/Da'esh Sanctions Committee has also highlighted the presence of foreign fighters in Afghanistan. For violence to end in Afghanistan, these terrorist supply chains must be broken," he added.
