Do Not Touch Iran Nuclear Deal, UN Chief Warns Trump
You may have heard that United States President Donald Trump is threating to rip the Iran Nuclear deal to pieces.
The Iran Nuclear deal was the agreement that America and its other global allies reached during the administration of former US President, Barack Obama.
Obama got Iran to sign and stop development of nuclear weapons.
But Trump had said the deal didn’t favour America and threatened to pull out of the agreement.
The move has been criticized by many world leaders including Russia and France.
Now, the United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has become the latest global leader to ask Trump to reconsider his stance on the Iran nuclear deal.

Guterres on Thursday warned against scrapping the international deal on Iran’s nuclear programme unless there is a suitable alternative in place.
“If one day there is a better agreement to replace it, it’s fine, but we should not scrap it unless we have a good alternative,” Guterres said in an interview with BBC Radio 4.
“I believe the JCPOA (the Iran nuclear deal) was an important diplomatic victory and I think it will be important to preserve it but I also believe there are areas in which it will be very important to have a meaningful dialogue because I see the region in a very dangerous position,” he said.
He added: “I understand the concerns of some countries in relation to the Iranian influence in other countries of the region. So, I think we should separate things.”
