On his speech at a cabinet session on Wednesday, Hassan Rouhani congratulated the Iranian nation on the termination of the arms embargo that would take effect on coming Sunday.
“On the next Sunday, we will announce this good news to the nation that 10 years of the cruel arms embargo is removed,” Rouhani said.
The US made every effort to impede the removal of the arms embargo on Iran, but the Iranian nation’s resistance yielded results, he added.
Those who ask about the achievements of the JCPOA should consider that this arms removal is one the achievements, “It lifted the arms embargo. As of Sunday, we are able to sell our weapon to everybody we wish and buy weapons from everybody we wish.” He asserted.
According to the UN Security Council Resolution 2231, the arms embargo against Iran will be lifted on Sunday, October 18, at GMT+3:30. Washington’s efforts to extend the embargo have been futile as the Council opposed its plan in September.
