Iran PressIran news: In response to the news on the suspension of Iran's right to vote in the UN, the Spokesman for the country's Ministry of Foreign Affairs Saeed Khatibzadeh said: "The Islamic Republic of Iran has always acted on time to pay its membership fee to the UN, and the problem arose last year was due to the blocking of the payment route by the US."

Khatibzadeh said Iran proposed a solution to transfer money from its financial resources in South Korea, and it was decided that the UN while trying to remove barriers on the way of money transfer, pursues OFAC license for the transfer process.

In recent days, the Secretary-General of the UN wrote a letter to the President of the General Assembly requesting that Iran and nine other countries be deprived of their voting rights due to the delay in the payment of their annual membership fees.
