On Thursday, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called on countries that host the Games to implement travel bans.
He also said the Games could become a “global symbol of hope and opportunity for the world’s people.”

U.S.-Iran tensions have been high since President Donald Trump first announced the ban in January.
Trump has accused Iran of violating a 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, and has called on Tehran to “stop their nuclear activities.”
U.NS and other world powers have said Iran is complying with the deal and has never provided any evidence to support such allegations.

Trump has said he will renegotiate the nuclear agreement with Iran, which the United Nations says has violated its commitments.
