The United States failed in an attempt to achieve a renewal in the UN security Council arms embargo against Iran, this was stated in an interview with Fox News, the US presidential Advisor for national security Robert O'Brien.
On Friday, the UN security Council did not support the U.S. resolution to extend 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 of military equipment to Iran is temporary and will expire on October 18. Voted for the document, only the United States and the Dominican Republic. Russia and China were against the other members of the security Council abstained.
"We suffered this defeat, but the end is not yet," said O'Brien.
Advisor to Donald trump also admitted that the refusal of France, Germany and the UK to support the United States in the UN security Council "disappointing, but not surprising".
Earlier, Russia’s permanent representative to the international organizations in Vienna Mikhail Ulyanov said that the US attempt to extend the Iranian arms embargo, "failed miserably". The diplomat expressed the opinion that the United States had planned the outcome of the vote, "but still went ahead".
In turn, Russia’s permanent representative to the UN, Vasily Nebenzia said that Russia voted in the UN security Council against the US-proposed draft resolution on extension of the arms embargo against Iran, as has consistently opposed attempts to impose such restrictions Tehran.
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 from 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The agreement in particular provided that the arms embargo would be withdrawn from Iran within five years, the supply of arms possible before, but only with the permission of the UN security Council.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.
