In 2015, 38 multilateral arms embargoes were in force: 15 imposed by the United Nations, 22 by the European Union (EU) and 1 by the League of Arab States (see table 19.1).1 Of the EU’s 22 embargoes, 11 implemented UN decisions directly, 3 implemented UN embargoes with modified geographical scope or coverage in terms of the weapon types included, and 8 had no UN counterpart.2 The single Arab League arms embargo on Syria had no UN counterpart. The majority of these embargoes only covered arms. However, the UN and EU embargoes on Iran and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK, or North Korea) and the EU embargo on Russia also cover certain exports of dual-use goods.3
