Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Thursday said that the United States has no right to “abuse” the United Nations and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to vilify Iran.

The United States has tried to “heighten tension with Iran and bully others to follow,” Zarif tweeted on Thursday.

Zarif said that Washington has a record of “violating” international agreements, including Iran’s 2015 landmark nuclear deal, also known as JCPOA.

Therefore, “it retains no right to abuse UN and IAEA to vilify Iran,” he added.

Washington has said that it seeks to restore all the lifted sanctions against Iran if the UN Security Council fails to preserve a UN ban on selling conventional arms to Iran.

Under the Resolution 2231, which endorses Iran’s nuclear deal, arms embargo on Iran will be lifted in October.
