In response to Mike Pompeo's claim about Iran's arms embargo, the Permanent Representative of Iran to the United Nations said that these remarks are another US attempt to divert attention from its continued economic terrorism against Iran.

Iran PressAmerica: Ambassador and Permanent Representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Nations Majid Takhte-Ravanchi stated in a twitter message on Sunday, “Yet another attempt by the US to distract from its continued economic terrorism on the Iranian people: this time, US is calling on UNSC to violate its very resolution 2231, and continue arms restrictions on Iran. “

He also noted,” But US will not succeed in wooing others to violate int'l law.”

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo claimed in a tweet on Saturday that the UN Security Council must extend the arms embargo on Iran.

The Independent Resolution 2231 called on member states to impose restrictions on Iran's communications and arms deals for five years.
