Iran: Arms Control

Volume 501: debated on Tuesday 1 December 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent assessment has been made of Iranian compliance with UN Security Council Resolutions banning the export of arms from Iran; and if he will make a statement. (301975)

The UK takes allegations of violations of UN Security Council Resolutions very seriously. We are aware that the Iran Sanctions Committee is currently investigating recent incidents with the member states concerned. The Committee will provide a report on its activities in its annual report, which will be published in December 2009. The Government fully support the Committee pursuing this matter thoroughly and urgently.
