Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, Jan Eliasson, has said that the entire world would benefit from a final nuclear deal between Iran and P5+1.

Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations Jan Eliasson on Wednesday expressed hope that Iran’s nuclear negotiations with P5+1 will reach a final comprehensive agreement which will benefit the entire world.

Eliasson made the remarks in a ceremony held in Tehran to mark the establishment anniversary of the United Nations Organization.

Eliasson hoped that besides reaching a final agreement, solutions will be worked out to other international problems as well.

He said national and international affairs are tightly intertwined in today’s world so that no single country can resolve its problem on its own.

As for major issues such as immigration and climate change, he added it will become clear that all world nations should have an international approach to resolving their problems.

In the current globalized world, no international issue can be settled without a global outlook, said the UN deputy secretary general.

Eliasson stressed that international cooperation on economic, social, political and international issues will be a great help for global peace and security.

The UN official said he has travelled to Iran more than 20 times, and added that in meetings with Iranian officials during his current visit, he will discuss major regional issues including the terrorist group of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and the war in Syria.

He also hoped that his talks with Iranian officials will lead to finding a solution to major regional crises.
