A resolution proposed by Iran aimed at the disarmament of nuclear states has been approved by the United Nations despite obstruction of the US and its allies.
The resolution calls on all countries armed with nuclear weapons to destroy their arsenal in accordance with the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT).
They also have to stop manufacturing new nuclear weapons and exporting them to other countries, or deploying them on foreign soil.
On Saturday, the UN First Committee voted 112 for and 44 against the non-binding measure, while 15 countries abstained from voting.
The United States, Israel, Britain, Russia and France were among those countries who voted against the resolution.
Tehran devised the resolution based on the ratification of the Review Conferences of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty held in 1995, 2000, and 2010.
