Iran expelled from global arms show
Iran has been expelled from an international armaments trade show in Malaysia for being in breach of a United Nations resolution banning arms exports.
Malaysia's deputy premier, Najib Razak, confirmed that the country had been expelled from the 11th Defence Services Asia show.
"Unfortunately, when we inspected the Iranian state, there were missiles that are in clear contravention of UN resolutions, " Razak said.
Iranian companies were notified to leave the show on Tuesday but the news was released on Thursday.
Razak told reporters the government's move was not because of complaints from the US and Britain.
United Nations resololutions prohibit Iran from exporting arms and for other countries to give technical assistance to Tehran for the development of nuclear arms.
