U.N. chief concerned Iran may violate arms embargo

2 weeks ago

The United Nations Chief, Antonio Guterres has expressed concern to the Security Council that Iran may have violated an arms embargo by supplying weapons and missiles to Lebanese Shi’ite group Hezbollah.

The 2nd bi-annual report, due to be discussed by the 15-member council next week, also cites an accusation by France that an arms shipment seized in the northern Indian Ocean in March was from Iran, and likely bound for Somalia or Yemen.

Most U.N. sanctions were lifted a year ago under a deal Iran made with Britain, France, Germany, China, Russia, the United States and the European Union to curb its nuclear program.

But Iran is still subject to an arms embargo and other restrictions, which are not technically part of the nuclear agreement.
