UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has said oil missiles at Saudi Arabia and missiles fired at an international airport were made in Iran.
According to Reuters, Antonio Guterres told a UN Security Council meeting that the United States had seized Iranian-made weapons in November 2019 and February 2020.
The secretary-general said the weapons might have been moved in violation of a 2015 Security Council resolution. Under the resolution, conditions were set between Iran and other countries regarding Iran’s nuclear program.
According to Reuters, Iran’s mission to the United Nations has not yet responded to the allegations.
According to Antonio Guterres, the United Nations has inspected the wreckage of missiles fired at Saudi installations and Abha International Airport, cruise missiles, or parts of which were manufactured in Iran.
Oil installations in the Saudi city of Afif were attacked in May last year, while missiles were fired at Abha International Airport in June and August, and Saudi Aramco oil installations were targeted in September.
Antonio Guterres said Iran’s ambassador to the United Nations had assured him that Iran would not export weapons in violation of a Security Council resolution.
The United States is urging the 15-nation Security Council to extend its arms embargo on Iran, which expires in October under a nuclear deal. Russia and China, two members of the Security Council, have stated opposition to using force or imposing sanctions on Iran.
Twice a year, the UN Secretary-General informs the Security Council of the nuclear sanctions imposed on Iran and their implementation.
