“It (the UN Security Council Resolution 1929 relating to the sanctions against Iran) is a commitment from the Security Council and we are obliged to apply the sanctions, as it is part of international legal framework. We are committed to implementing it,’’ Ahmed Al Jarman told reporters on the sidelines of the conference titled ‘Fifth Forum of UAE Ambassadors and Heads of Diplomatic Representations Abroad’ at the Emirates Palace hotel.
The ambassador, however, said no date had been fixed to start implementing the resolutions.
He said the application of the Security Council resolution was one of the agenda of the three-day ambassadors’ conference which concluded on Wednesday. “We will highlight this during the conference and instructions will be given to the authorities concerned on the application of the resolution for sanctions against Iran after the conference, he said.
“There is a national committee now in the UAE dealing with all aspects of the UN Resolution, including political, financial and economic implications. The committee headed by the Foreign Minister comprises of all the relevant authorities,’’ Al Jarman said.
Asked whether the UAE has made any assessment on the economic impact of the sanctions against Iran, considering that Iran is one of the major trade partners of the UAE, the ambassador said: “This is being discussed.’’
