Conventional arms embargo on Iran ends today
October 18, 2020

The United Nations conventional arms embargoes imposed on Iran thirteen years ago will officially expire today despite strong US opposition.

Meanwhile, the Spokesperson of Iranian Foreign Ministry said that Iran's defence doctrine is premised on strong reliance on its people and indigenous capabilities.

He said unconventional arms, weapons of mass destruction and a buying spree of conventional arms have no place in Iran's defence doctrine.

On the other hand, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said, today will be a memorable day in the history of our country's diplomacy. He congratulated world powers in standing up to the US unilateralism.
