Iran and six other countries have lost their voting rights in the United Nations General Assembly for failure to meet their financial obligations to the organization.
The countries cited by the UN have lost their right to vote, according to Algemeiner, because under Article 19 of the UN Charter, “a Member State in arrears in the payment of its dues in an amount that equals or exceeds the contributions due for two preceding years can lose its vote in the General Assembly.”
Iran claimed in a statement on Monday that it has paid its dues, but also that it has been kept from doing so because of U.S. sanctions.
It seems that sanctions have made a significant impact! Be praying for the Iranian people as I see prophetically a move of God taking place in Iran according to the Bible.
We're being CENSORED ... HELP get the WORD OUT! SHARE!!!
