US not keeping silent on Iran sanctions violations

The US ambassador to the United Nations on Tuesday rejected suggestions by a UN panel that Washington has kept silent about Iranian sanctions violations in order to avoid disrupting fragile negotiations on a nuclear deal with Tehran. The UN Security Council’s Panel of Experts on Iran said in April that it has received no new confirmed reports of Iranian violations despite several media reports of Iranian weapons shipments to Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Yemen and Hezbollah and Hamas militants in violation of a UN embargo.
