The permanent representative of Iran said that the US was in isolation in the UN security Council

The results of the vote of the UN Security Council on a resolution on the extension of the arms embargo against Iran demonstrate the isolation of the US, said the permanent representative of Iran to the UN Majid Takht-Ravanchi.

On Friday, the UN security Council did not support the U.S. resolution on extension of the arms embargo against Iran, that actively supports Washington. For the resolution voted in the United States and the Dominican Republic were against Russia and China, abstained 11 members of the security Council. According to the agreements in the framework of the Joint comprehensive plan of action (SVPD), permits the supply to Iran of military equipment is temporary and will expire on October 18. According to the rejected draft resolution, the Security Council would take a decision, certain provisions of the previous resolution 2231 (regulate the establishment of SVPD) regardless of their validity "will continue to apply until the Security Council decides otherwise."

The envoy also called the US attempt to extend the sanctions are illegal, therefore she was "rejected by the international community."

US Ambassador to the UN, Kelly Kraft after the vote on the resolution stated that Washington in the coming days, will launch the recovery procedure of sanctions against Iran within the framework of resolution 2231. Resolution 2231, adopted in 2015, contains an automatic renewal of the UN sanctions against Iran in case Iran will not fulfill its obligations under the AGREEMENT. This mechanism is valid for 10 years from 2015. The resolution suggests that if during this period there are any serious violations of the Iran, the country can avoid sanctions only if the adoption of a resolution of the UN security Council. If at least one of its permanent members will vote against her, the sanctions will be automatically renewed for 30 days.

Iran and the six international negotiators in July 2015 have reached a historic 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 The agreement in particular provided that the arms embargo would be withdrawn from Iran within five years, the supply of arms possible before, but only with the permission of the UN security Council.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.
