Iran takes into account all the scenarios with the arms embargo
Tehran considers all the scenarios around the arms embargo and the resolution of the IAEA, but to hurry with the answer is not, told RIA Novosti the official representative of the government of Iran, Ali Rabia.
According to him, resolution of the IAEA for admission to the two disputed nuclear sites in Iran and US attempts to renew the arms embargo Tehran sees as two different issues.
"However, we understand that the American regime is trying to deal with the issue of the arms embargo and (resolution – ed.) of the IAEA in the framework of a dangerous idea. We consider all possible scenarios and options for each of these questions. We will take necessary and appropriate decisions without haste," said Rabia.
Earlier, the US introduced in the UN security Council a draft resolution on the extension of the arms embargo against Iran, which expires this fall.
According to the draft, the security Council must decide that after the expiration of the measures imposed in resolution 2231, "all member States shall prevent the direct or indirect supply, sale or transfer to Iran through their territories or by their nationals, or using their vessels or aircraft ... of arms and related material". The exception, based on American project, it may be, if the special Committee approves, at least 30 days of such activities "for humanitarian purposes or for any other task to meet the objectives of this resolution."
In addition, the document envisages the introduction of a ban on the supply, sale or transfer of Iranian weapons. Member countries of the UN, according to the text, should forbid its citizens to buy weapons from Iran. The authors propose to forbid the States to share with Iran experts, knowledge and financial resources that can be used to create and maintain them. The US also propose to prohibit Iran to take such action in relation to the outside world.
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.
