A senior Iranian official has called on members of the UN Security Council to show their independence by voting against a US-drafted resolution on the extension of a UN arms embargo against Iran, which is to expire in October.

In a tweet on Monday, the Iranian president's chief of staff Mahmoud Vaezi said the upcoming session of the UN Security Council to vote on the US-drafted resolution is a “big test” for the Council's member states.

"The member states of the Security Council are on the verge of a big test to show their independence by giving a negative vote to the US regime's pressures, which are aimed at imposing its will against Iran, violating the UN Security Council Resolution 2231 and leading the 2015 nuclear deal (JCPOA) to collapse," he said.
