EghtesadOnline: Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif blasted UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon for his "incomplete" report on the implementation of the Security Council Resolution 2231.
"The report has been compiled based on incomplete information, while he (Ban Ki-moon) was not informed of developments at the time of negotiations; as we have earlier said the UN played no role in compiling the nuclear deal and as witnessed, they have done something that is not beneficial to the nuclear deal," Zarif told FNA on Tuesday.
Also asked about the allegations raised in Ban's report on Iran's arms supplies to Iraq, he said, "In a statement we issued concurrently with Resolution 2231, we stated that we would continue our actions in the campaign against terrorism and it is our policy and isn’t related to the nuclear deal."
Ban Ki-moon claimed in a report to the Security Council that Iran's missile tests after the nuclear deal were "not consistent" with the spirit of the agreement signed with world powers last July, although his words did not mean a violation of the resolution.
Before Zarif, his spokesman Bahram Qassemi had alsoThe lashed out at Ban Ki-moon for his "unbalanced and biased" report on the implementation of the UN Security Council's resolution 2231, stressing that Tehran will not allow anyone to even speak about its defense capabilities.
"The report has been compiled under the blatant pressures of the US on the UN Secretariat and the allegations raised against the Islamic Republic of Iran in this report are baseless," Qassemi said on Monday.
