Iran: UN arms embargo on Tehran lifted

Iran to start Arms trade with other countries as UN Embargo ends on 18 October

"A momentous day for the worldwide community, which, in defiance of malign United States efforts, has protected UNSC Res. 2231 and the JCPOA", Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote in his Twitter account.

Despite last-moment attempts by the USA to prevent the embargo from being lifted, the rest of the UN Security Council refused to extend it beyond the timeline set by the Iran nuclear deal.

"Today's normalization of Iran's defense cooperation with the world is a win for the cause of multilateralism and peace and security in our region", he added. Those sanctions that had been lifted as part of a landmark 2015 agreement that offered economic relief in exchange for Iran giving up key aspects of its nuclear weapons program.

A decade-long United Nations arms embargo on Iran that barred it from purchasing foreign weapons, such as tanks and fighter jets, expired Sunday as planned under its nuclear deal with world powers - despite objections from the United States, which insists the ban remains in place.

But the USA legal argument has been rejected by nearly the entire Security Council, with European allies of the United States saying the priority is to salvage a peaceful solution to Iran's nuclear programme. Tehran also may try to buy Russia's S-400 anti-aircraft missile system and its Bastian coastal defence missile system, the DIA said.

Tensions between Washington and Tehran have soared since U.S. President Donald Trump in 2018 unilaterally withdrew from the deal, however.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned Sunday that any nation or other entity who sells arms to Iran will be sanctioned by the United States.

However, Finch got out in the next over as Shreyas Gopal gave RR their first breakthrough after Robin Uthappa completed the catch. RCB needed 35 runs from the last two overs and De Villiers whacked three sixes on the trot at the start of the penultimate over.

Britain, France and Germany remain committed to the survival of the Iran nuclear deal.

However, Donald Trump's presidency in the U.S. has led to an escalation of tensions between Washington and Tehran.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani warned it will have a "decisive response" if the US tries to "bully" other nations into adhering to its reinstatement of sanctions. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres also told the council he would not take any action on the USA declaration.

"Oct. 18, 2020 marks the fifth anniversary of the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, known commonly as the Iran nuclear deal or Iran deal) Adoption Day", according to a press release of the mission.

The defence minister of Israel, Iran's other arch foe, Benny Gantz wrote that "with the expiration of the arms embargo on Iran today, we must be stronger and more determined than ever".

Iran has developed a large domestic arms industry in the face of global sanctions and embargoes that have barred it from importing many weapons.
