Qassemi wrote in a post on his Twitter account that Iran will continue to strengthen peace, stability and security across the world, and will do its best to protect its inalienable rights by using internationally recognized mechanisms.
He went on to say that the US numerous measures and aggravation of its illegal efforts to impose unilateral policies at the Security Council in a bid to extend Iran's arms embargo have yielded no fruit as the majority of the UNSC member states didn’t surrender to Washington’s pressures.
"The US move provided an opportunity to stress the world's clear opposition to egotism, monopoly and disrespect for international standards by that country," the ambassador added.
In relevant remarks, Iranian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf said that expiration and removal of the UN arms sanctions against his country was a considerable failure for the US government.
“Today is the date for expiration of arms restrictions stated in the resolution 2231. Undoubtedly, this issue is a considerable failure for the US administration which enjoys low wisdom and its show-off president who is incapable and isolated and has faced the international community’s action against his illegal measures to implement the snapback mechanism and failed" to destroy the removal of Iran arms trade ban, Qalibaf said, addressing an open session of the parliament in Tehran on Sunday.
He underlined the need for the Iranian officials to take major steps to show a proper and deterrent reaction to the US increased pressures and pave the ground for purchasing and selling weapons.
