ABUJA, Nigeria — Iran said that the Gambia-bound arms shipment seized at Nigeria's busiest port three months ago did not breach sanctions imposed by the United Nations.





Iranian ambassador Hussein Abdullahi said Wednesday that the shipment "was not conflicting with the UN sanctions," because Iran and Gambia had signed a secret agreement two years before the U.N.'s 2010 ban on Iranian arms exports.





The U.N., however, banned exports in a 2007 resolution and tightened sanctions in 2010.
