The U.N. Security Council has set out new arrangements to monitor an arms embargo on Iran and restrictions on its ballistic missiles and other programs that remain in place after its compliance with last summer's landmark nuclear deal and the lifting of U.N. and Western sanctions.

The new arrangements replace the Security Council committee that monitored U.N. sanctions until they were lifted last Saturday.

A note from the council president circulated Thursday sets out "practical arrangements and procedures" for the Security Council to ensure implementation of the resolution it adopted on July 20 that endorsed the deal to rein in Iran's nuclear program.

They include selecting one of the council's 15 members to be the "facilitator," and asking U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to authorize U.N. support for the council's work.
