Spokesman: Iran faces problems of paying membership fees due to US unlawful sanctions

Tehran, IRNA – Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh in reaction to suspension of Iran’s voting right in United Nations said on Wednesday that unfortunately for the 2nd consecutive year due to the unjust and illegal US sanctions Tehran faced difficulties in payment of membership fees to the UN.

Iran, as one of the founding and active members of the United Nations naturally considers itself committed to full payment of its membership fees to the United Nations and other international organizations and agencies, Khatibzadeh said.

He added that despite the created numerous shortages, the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran has provided the required sources for payment of its membership costs to the UN and is engaged in necessary negotiations for resolving the matter.

"Meanwhile, providing a safe channel for fast payment of the membership cost is under consideration," he added.

The Foreign Ministry spokesman at the end proposed that the UN secretary general and Secretariat, too, will keep in mind the special conditions with which Iran and some other countries are entangled due to the illegally imposed US sanction and assist in resolving the problem.
