Iran’s voting right in UN returned: Ravanchi

Tehran (ISNA) – Iran’s Permanent Ambassador to the United Nations Majid Takht-Ravanchi announced the return of Iran’s voting right at this international organization.

He stressed that Iran’s arrears have been paid to the United Nations and as soon as Iran’s debt of its membership fee at the UN is collected in New York, Iran’s voting rights should naturally resume on Monday of the current week.

The South Korean Ministry of Economy and Finance said $18 million, part of the delinquent fees, was paid to the UN on Friday, using the Tehran assets frozen in South Korea after consultations with related organizations.

“Iran’s right to vote at the General Assembly is expected to be restored immediately with the payment,” the ministry said in a statement.
