The extension of UN Security Council resolution 2231 relating to the arms embargo on Iran is vital to put pressure on the Iranian regime in view of the absence of any practical measures capable of reining in this regime’s policies and ending its continuous support for terrorist regimes and militias.
The Syrian Opposition Coalition warns that lifting the arms embargo on Iran means more Syrians will lost their lives and that the Iranian regime will continue to threaten the stability of the region and the world. It is imperative to ratchet up pressure on the Iranian regime to prevent it from carrying on with its pernicious activities and persisting in its aggressive policies towards the countries of the region and its people.
Iran’s deleterious behavior against the peoples of the region and against the Iranian people requires more deterrent sanctions. The Iranian regime must not be allowed to obtain more weapons that it will use to suppress the Iranian people; spread chaos in the region; and transfer these weapons to other rogue countries and terrorist organizations and militias.
