US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has announced that arms sales to Iran would breach UN resolutions and lead to sanctions, APA reports citing Sputnik.

"The United States is prepared to use its domestic authorities to sanction any individual or entity that materially contributes to the supply, sale, or transfer of conventional arms to or from Iran...Every nation that seeks peace and stability in the Middle East and supports the fight against terrorism should refrain from any arms transactions with Iran," Pompeo's statement reads.

This comes after Iran announced earlier this week that all restrictions on the transfer of arms, related activities and financial services to and from The Islamic Republic of Iran had expired.
