Iran UN Dues
By Micah Halpern
For the second year in a row Iran, was unable to pay their dues at the United Nations.
That means that, once again, Iran will not be able to participate in any of the votes on UN committees or in the General Assembly.
The minimum Iran needs to pay the UN is $18 million.
US sanctions have made it difficult - if not impossible, for Iran to get the money they need. Although the United States did free up $7 billion for Iran from a South Korean bank, it was too late.
Under the UN charter, if a member country’s arrears are equal to or exceed the amount of dues it should have paid over the preceding two years, that country’s voting rights are suspended until payment is made.
