Iran now expects the remaining signatories to the nuclear deal – Russia, France, China, Britain and Germany – to formally declare that the UN arms embargo will come to an end on October 18.
“Countries which are parties to the JCPOA must formally announce the lifting of arms restrictions, in accordance with the JCPOA, and let the world know that the Islamic Republic of Iran is allowed to buy and sell arms,” Mojtaba Zolnouri, the head of the Iranian parliament’s National Security Committee, was quoted as saying by the Islamic Consultative Assembly News Agency (ICANA).
The US has used everything in its power to prevent the lifting of the UN arms embargo, but failed, Zolnouri said. “This can be considered as a failure for the US and a victory for Iran,” the lawmaker added.
