Zarif called on the UN security Council to keep the process of lifting the arms embargo

Attempts to change the schedule of lifting the arms embargo against Iran is tantamount to the undermining of resolution 2231 UN security Council, said at a meeting of security Council foreign Minister of Iran Mohammad Javad Zarif.

U.S. seeks extension of expiring in the autumn of the arms embargo against Iran. Recently States have made to UN security Council resolution relevant content.

"The timetable for the lifting of restrictions on arms transfers as reflected in resolution 2231 is an integral part of a delicately negotiated compromise that allowed the parties AGREEMENT to finalize the overall package of the AGREEMENT and of resolution 2231. The resolution contains a clear call to its "full implementation on schedule." Any attempt to change or to amend an agreed schedule, thus, tantamount to the undermining of resolution 2231 overall," said Zarif.

He urged the Council not to allow the United States to disrupt this process.

Iran and the six international negotiators in July 2015 reached agreement on the settlement of the longstanding problem of the Iranian atom. Months of negotiations concluded with the adoption of a joint comprehensive plan of action (SVPD), which is completely removed from Iran's previously imposed economic and financial sanctions by the UN security Council, US and EU.

The agreement in particular provided that the arms embargo would be withdrawn from Iran within five years, the supply of arms possible before, but only with the permission of the UN security Council. The deal in its original form lived for three years: in may 2018, the United States announced its unilateral withdrawal from her and the restoration of tougher sanctions against Tehran. However, because of the formal deal came only USA, the rest of the participants must comply with a condition on the abolition of the arms embargo.
