Failure to pay dues, Iran loses right to vote in UN General Assembly

Iran and six other countries have lost their voting rights in the United Nations General Assembly for failure to meet their financial obligations to the organization.

Iran claimed in a statement on Monday that it has paid its dues, but also that it has been kept from doing so because of U.S. sanctions.

“This year too, as the US blocked channels available to transfer financial resources, Iran has been in talks with the UN Treasury since long ago in order for the world body to introduce a safe channel [for money transfer],” he claimed.
