  • US attempts to extend UN arms ban to fail: Iran's spokesman

Washington’s attempts to extend the arms embargoes against the Islamic Republic will fail as Tehran’s consultations with other members of the Security Council show they are all against this move, the Iranian Foreign Ministry’s spokesman said.

According to Tasnim news agency, speaking in a press briefing on Monday, Seyyed Abbas Mousavi said Iran predicts another failure for the United States in this regard.

He further underlined that three special moves have been planned by Iran in response and they will be decided considering the situation.

Mousavi also said the Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, will deliver a speech at the UN Security Council meeting on the implementation of Resolution 2231.

“The United States is not in a position to question the results of UNSC's  Resolution 2231 and use the trigger mechanism,” he added.
