Iranian Defence Minister Amir Hatami estimated that 90 per cent of Iranian weapons were produced domestically, and underscored that after the lifting of UN arms restrictions in October, “we can use this legal right to interact with friendly countries… there are excellent products and technical capacities in the country’s defence industry that can be used in the export of products and services”. He added: “Under Resolution 2231… many defence industry products were not defined as weapons and we were not prohibited from exporting them. Certainly, after lifting of sanctions, we can export, as in many other countries, within the framework of national and international policies and regulations”.
