U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says the threat from weapons of mass destruction "seems to be gathering force" and is urging expanded diplomatic efforts to tackle the security challenge posed by North Korea's nuclear ambitions.
The deal is a "major achievement of nuclear nonproliferation and diplomacy, and has contributed to regional and global peace and security", he said.
Guterres called for concerns relating to the implementation of the nuclear deal "to be addressed through the mechanisms established by the agreement", Dujarric said, according to Reuters.
"If the deal is put aside and Iran is told, "you keep up with your obligations or we will impose sanctions again", then you have to put North Korea in its place", Lavrov said.
He said the issue of North Korea's pursuit of nuclear weapons "can be resolved by restoring trust among the United States, Russia and China".
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday Moscow will not support attempts by Washington to modify the Iran nuclear deal.
