U.N. weighs in on Iran embargo
News Date: 25th June 2011


U.N. member states are called on to cooperate with investigations into alleged violations of an arms embargo on Iran, a committee leader said.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in a joint statement announced Washington imposed sanctions on Tidewater Middle East Company and Iran Air for their links to Iranian proliferation activities.

"Preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons is a top U.S. government priority and we remain deeply concerned about Iran's nuclear intentions," a statement from the U.S. State Department said. "The United States is committed to a dual-track policy of applying pressure in pursuit of constructive engagement, and a negotiated solution."

Meanwhile, Nestor Osorio, chairman of a U.N. committee monitoring an arms embargo on Iran, said his committee had received notifications of several cases tied to violations of the ban.

The U.S. officials in their statement said Iran Air was providing material support for the Iranian military to facilitate proliferation activities. The sanctions, they said, exposed certain figures "for their ties to a company that provided support and weapons to Hezbollah on behalf of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps."

Osorio in his statement praised the "readiness of states to report alleged sanctions violations and encourages states to cooperate with the panel of experts in its investigations of incidents of non-compliance."
