The US has promised to fight the supply of weapons to Iran

The United States will continue to seek an end to the supply of weapons by third countries to Iran, regardless of the UN sanctions policy, State Department spokesman Ned Price said.

“Regardless of the UN sanctions architecture, we will continue to use our legislation to prevent other countries from supplying weapons to Iran. In this regard, our position has not changed, “ the diplomat said.

According to him, the United States “removes such unnecessary obstacles to diplomacy” as “restrictions on travel within the country for Iran's representatives to the UN.”

Price stressed that the measures were taken to “strengthen Washington's ability to interact” with the UN Security Council on the situation around Iran.

Earlier, the United States notified the UN that it was withdrawing the request of the administration of former President Donald Trump to resume sanctions against Iran.

Washington also expressed hope for joint work with Russia and China on the Iranian nuclear program, despite the serious differences that the American side may have with Moscow and Beijing on other issues.
