MOSCOW, February 20. /TASS/. There are no longer any direct restrictions on cooperation with Iran in the military-technical sphere, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told TASS on Saturday.
"It is alleged that a ban on delivery of weapons and military equipment to Iran imposed by the UN Security Council is still in effect and that this arms embargo has been imposed by Resolution 2231 of the UN Security Council passed in support of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). This is not true," Zakharova said. "Resolution 2231 provides for the permission-based procedure of supplying military products to Iran by obtaining consent of the UN Security Council. This rule is set for the period until 2020."
The diplomat stressed that Russia will act in line with United Nations Security Council resolution 2231 in the sphere of military technical cooperation with Iran.
"On our part, we, in our cooperation with Iranian partners, will act in strict accordance with the set procedure, including, of course, the above-mentioned UN Security Council resolution ," Zakharova told TASS.
