To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs, pursuant to the Answer of 16 July 2020 to Question 71913, what progress has been made in discussions with international partners to address the expiry of the UN conventional arms embargo on Iran in October 2020.
9 September 2020
We have serious concerns regarding the implications for regional security of the scheduled expiry of the UN conventional arms embargo. We are considering all options both inside and outside of the UN Security Council (UNSC). We continue to be guided by the need to uphold the authority and integrity of the UNSC and to advance regional security and stability.
