US urges UN Security Council to extend arms embargo against Iran

Monday, 29 June, 2020 - 18:32

The proposal to extend the trade embargo against Iranian arms manufacturers was voiced by US Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook and US Permanent Representative to the UN Kelly Kraft on June 26, the UN State Department reports.

During a UN Security Council videoconference, US diplomats talked about a draft resolution implying a ban on arms supplies from Iran.  The existence of the project was previously known: copies of it were presented to members of the Security Council.

  Brian Hook also voiced the position of the United States, arguing the demand for an economic war against Iran.

Recall, the arms embargo against Iran expires this fall.
