Permanent Representative of Russia to International Organizations in Vienna advised the White House to respect the views of other members of the UN Security Council instead of pursuing a policy of unilateralism on the international stage.

Iran PressEurope: Pointing to the US-led campaign to extend the United Nations' arms embargo on Iran, Mikhail Ulyanov wrote on Twitter:

In June, the United States introduced a draft resolution at the UN Security Council to extend the arms embargo on Iran before it expires in mid-October. Russia and China have already voiced their opposition to the draft resolution.

In 2015, Iran signed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) with China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom, the US, and the European Union. It required Iran to scale back its nuclear program and severely downgrade its uranium reserves in exchange for sanctions relief, including lifting the arms embargo five years after the deal's adoption. In 2018, the US pulled out of the JCPOA and reinstated harsh sanctions on Tehran.
