Iran PressEurope: "Think you know which country is the world's largest exporter of arms," Zhang Jun, Chinese Ambassador to the United Nations tweeted.

"UNSCR2231 is clear on lifting arms-related restrictive measures on Iran in October. US unilateral and political push for extending arms embargo on Iran will lead to nowhere," he tweeted.
