Seven UN members lose right to vote over unpaid dues
The other six countries are Niger, Libya, the Central African Republic, Congo Brazzaville, South Sudan and Zimbabwe, Guterres said in a letter to the president of the General Assembly, Volkan Bozkir of Turkey.
The letter spells out an amount each country can pay, short of their total debt, to recover their right to vote.
Iran, for instance, needs to pay at least $16.2 million.
The UN's budget is around $3.2 billion per year. The budget for peacekeeping operations is separate and totals around $6.5 billion.
