The United Nations announced on Friday that it had identified Iran as the source of several items in two arms shipments seized by the United States, as well as debris left over from attacks on oil facilities and Saudi Arabia’s international airport, according to a new report.
U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said that some of the items seized by the United States in November 2019 and February 2020 were identical or similar to those found after the cruise missile and drone attacks on Saudi Arabia in 2019.
In a report to the UN Security Council that The Associated Press received on Friday, he said that some items seized by the United States in international waters off the coast of Yemen are not only of Iranian origin, but may have been transferred in a manner contrary to the Council resolution approving the nuclear agreement with Iran in 2015.
The Secretary-General shall report on the implementation of the 2015 resolution on a nuclear agreement to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons. These include those of 16. Restrictions on the supply of nuclear equipment and weapons and ballistic missiles to and from Iran entered into force on 1 January 2016. The Security Council should monitor the implementation of the Resolution of 30 June 2004. The United States should discuss this issue on 11 June and insist that the UN arms embargo on Iran, which is part of the embargo, be extended indefinitely until it expires in October.

In May 2018, President Donald Trump pulled the United States out of the nuclear deal and relaxed or lifted its sanctions. U.S. officials claim that Iran is working on nuclear warheads, which the Iranians deny.
Iran denies involvement in the attacks
The Iranian State Department rejected the report and said Friday that the UN may have drafted the report under political pressure from the United States, the Xinhua news agency reported.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has said that the United States does not have the right to abuse the United Nations to denigrate Iran.
In their statement, the United Nations said they lacked the capacity, experience and expertise to conduct such a complex and sensitive investigation, adding that the report reflected the specific allegations made by the United States. In fact, the U.S. is behind the wheel to make an alleged assessment of Iran’s connection to the attacks, Iran said.
There is no doubt that such reports will not contribute to peace and security in the region, according to the declaration.
Iran urges the UN Secretariat not to move towards the US scenario in order to avoid lifting the (UN) ban on conventional weapons (from sale) to Iran, according to the statement.
