Te­heran: A decade­long UN arms em­bargo on Iran that barred it from pur­chas­ing for­eign weapons such as tanks and fighter jets has ex­pired as planned un­der its nu­clear deal with world pow­ers, de­spite ob­jec­tions from the United States.

While in­sist­ing it plans no ‘‘buy­ing spree’’, Iran in the­ory can pur­chase weapons and sell its own lo­cally pro­duced gear abroad.

In prac­tice, how­ever, Iran’s econ­omy re­mains crip­pled by US sanc­tions. — AAP
