Senator Alexei Pushkov commented in his Twitter the failure of US attempts to extend the Iranian arms embargo in the UN security Council.

On Friday, the security Council did not support the U.S. resolution on extension of the arms embargo against Iran, that actively supports Washington. 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. For the resolution voted only USA and Dominican Republic. Russia and China were against it. The remaining 11 security Council members abstained.

"The United States was again in a "humiliating isolation": in the UN security Council failed their draft resolution on indefinite prohibition on the supply of weapons to Iran," Pushkov wrote.

According to him, it was another blow to the credibility of Washington.

"From Venezuela to Germany, where the US is trying to block the "Nord stream — 2", there is a growing resistance to their actions", - concluded the Senator.

As stated by Russia's permanent representative to the UN, Vasily Nebenzia, Russia voted in the UN security Council against the proposed United States draft resolution, as has consistently opposed attempts to impose such restrictions Tehran.
