Iran’s foreign ministry stated that it “categorically rejects the allegations of the UN Secretariat” as contained in the Secretary-General’s latest report on the implementation of resolution 2231, and further “expresses its deep concern over the abuse of the UN Secretariat for political purposes”. Raising its concern “that the report has been prepared under direction of the U.S.”, the ministry went on to urge “that the UN Secretariat not move in the pre-planned U.S. scenario to prevent the lifting of Iran's arms restrictions and not assist a violating State in this dangerous process by circulating such unlawful reports”.
