Why the U.N. must extend the Iran arms embargo (July 15)

JULY 15, 2020

The U.N. arms embargo against Iran should not be lifted. If the embargo expires in October, as currently scheduled, Iran’s regime could import tanks and fighter planes to threaten its neighbors. Without the restriction, Iran will become the arms dealer of choice for rogue states and terrorist groups. The U.N. Security Council needs to apply more pressure on Iran, not less.
