Iran regains voting rights at United Nations (UN)

Iran finally regained the right to vote in the United Nations(UN) General Assembly. Iran regains voting rights in the UN General Assembly by paying its annual arrears.

Iran’s ambassador to the United Nations, Majid Takhte Ravanchi, said on Twitter on Friday that after six months of working on the issue, the United Nations had announced yesterday that it had received the arrears. News Irner.

Iran’s suffrage in the General Assembly was revoked in January after the United Nations failed to pay its annual subscription. According to Article 19 of the Charter, countries that fail to pay their annual dues to the UN for two years will have their voting rights in the General Assembly revoked.

Majid Takhte Ravanchi said the complication was created in the late air to pay the dues due to unilateral and illegal US sanctions. He said the US sanctions not only deprived the people of the right to buy essential goods and medicines, but also failed to pay the annual UN tribute.

In 2016, former US President Donald Trump single-handedly withdrew Washington from the nuclear deal with Iran (2015). He later imposed sanctions on Iran, including a wide range of economic and trade sanctions.
