UNITED NATIONS - An independent panel of experts has recommended that the UN Security Council's Iran sanctions committee add two Iranian firms to a UN blacklist for violating a UN ban on arms exports by Tehran.

The recommendation to sanction Iran's Yas Air and SAD Import-Export is included in a confidential report by the panel of experts, seen by Reuters last month, which UN Security Council diplomats said was due to be released in the near future.



That report said Syria remained the top destination for Iranian arms shipments in violation of a UN Security Council ban on weapons exports by the Islamic Republic.

Britain's Deputy UN Ambassador Philip Parham told the UN Security Council on Tuesday that London supported the panel's recommendation of sanctioning the two firms.
