UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres asks US President Joe Biden to lift all sanctions on Iran as it was outlined in the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

In a biannual report to the UN Security Council on the Iran nuclear deal, Guterres urges the United States to “extend the waivers with regard to the trade in oil with the Islamic Republic of Iran, and fully renew waivers for nuclear non-proliferation projects,” according to Reuters.

Guterres met on Tuesday in New York with visiting President Reuven Rivlin.
