Javad Zarif: The US Demands An Arms Embargo For Iran While They Export Weapons Around The World

The US is seeking an extension of the arms embargo for Iran, while they export weapons all around the world. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote about this on his Twitter page on Saturday.

The Minister also appended that Iran "was a major importer of American weapons until 1979."

According to Zarif, "the US has long been the world's leader in military spending, arms sales, and the main instigator of military conflicts."

On May 1, Mike Pompeo stated that Washington is ready to take any measures to prevent Tehran from acquiring Russian or Chinese armored vehicles after the end of the arms embargo.

The New York Times reported on April 26 that the United States intends to try to get the UN Security Council to adopt a draft resolution that provides for maintaining the arms embargo against Tehran based on the provisions of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Iran's nuclear program. According to the provisions of the SFPD, which was signed by the permanent five of the UN Security Council and Germany with Iran in 2015, Tehran will be able to purchase weapons and military equipment from foreign suppliers from October.
