90% of USA House Calls for UN to Renew Iran Arms Embargoes

At least 384 members of the USA House of Representatives - nearly 90% - have signed a letter urging the administration to increase its diplomatic action at the UN to renew an arms embargo on Iran, congressional sources said days ago. "The UN arms embargo is set to expire in Oct. 2020, and we are concerned that the ban's expiration will lead to more states buying and selling weapons to and from Iran," said the letter, led by Reps. Eliot Engel (D-NY), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs. (VFI News)
