In the meantime, Iran is self-dependant in protection and sees no arms shopping for spree, it mentioned.
“Iran’s protection doctrine is premised on robust reliance on its folks and indigenous capabilities… Unconventional arms, weapons of mass destruction and a shopping for spree of standard arms don’t have any place in Iran’s protection doctrine,” the ministry mentioned.

“Iran has many mates and buying and selling companions, and has a strong home arms business to make sure its protection necessities towards international aggression,” Miryousefi mentioned, dismissing US unilateral strikes to exert pressures on different international locations regarding arms offers with Iran.
Majority of nations have dismissed US so-called most stress coverage on Iran, he mentioned, including that the US makes an attempt to “violate” the Iranian nuclear deal, also referred to as the JCPOA, have led to its “isolation.”
On Aug 15, the UN Safety Council rejected a decision proposed by Washington to increase the present arms embargo towards Iran.
Below UN Safety Council Decision 2231, which endorsed the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal, the arms embargo towards Iran will expire on Oct 18.
