Iran announces UN arms sanctions have been lifted

Tehran announced on Saturday that all weapons-related United Nations sanctions against Iran have been lifted.

"As of today, all restrictions on the transfer of arms, related activities and financial services to and from The Islamic Republic of Iran, and all prohibitions regarding the entry or transit through territories of the United Nations Member States previously imposed on a number of Iranian citizens and military officials, are all automatically terminated," the country's foreign ministry revealed.

Iran's Foreign Affairs Minister Javad Zarif stated on Twitter that this is a "momentous day for the international community, which - in defiance of malign US efforts - has protected UNSC Res. 2231 and JCPOA," praising the sanctions' termination as "a win for the cause of multilateralism and peace and security in our region."
