The UNGA’s First Committee, which deals with disarmament issues, voted 113-52 in favor of Iran’s nuclear disarmament resolution, which calls for “the total elimination” of member states’ nuclear arsenals, according to a copy of the draft resolution published in the Iranian press. Fifty-two member states, including the United States and Israel, voted against the disarmament measure, according to a vote tally provided by the U.N. Seven nations, including China and Pakistan, abstained from the vote, which took place on Thursday. Iran’s state-run media hailed the U.N.’s approval, which it claimed took place “despite the opposition of the U.S., the Zionist regime, and a number of western countries.”
