The Trump administration Wanted to disclose UN sanctions On Rimposed Iran In the coming days, a month after the introduction of the “snapback” method in a Security Council resolution on the Iran nuclear deal – but the move is likely to be ignored by many countries, including US allies.
“We will return to the United Nations to impose sanctions so that the arms embargo will become permanent next week.” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo Said in a press conference with the UK Foreign Secretary on Wednesday. “We deeply believe that this is good for the people of all countries.”
Pompeo went to the UN last month to introduce the “snapback” mechanism in Security Council Resolution 2231 – the resolution that finalized the Iran nuclear deal. As part of the 2015 agreement, a 30-day countdown is underway to end UN sanctions against the monarchy, including the arms embargo, which expires in October, or to re-impose the expiring UN sanctions.
But other members of the council, including China, Russia, the United Kingdom, France and Germany, have opposed the move and are prepared to ignore it. They argue that the U.S. is not in a position to trigger a snapback as it abandoned the Iran deal in 2018.
Germany, France and the UK said in a statement last month that “the position regarding the effectiveness of the US notification in pursuance of Resolution 2231 has been made very clear to the presidency and to all members of the UNSC as a result.” “Therefore, we cannot support this action, which is inconsistent with our current efforts to support JCPoA.”
President of the Security Council at the time U.S. Refused to carry out the request. But the U.S. has stepped forward, raising questions about what will happen when the U.S. announces re-imposition of sanctions and will be ignored equally by allies and enemies.
The move is likely to lead to a credibility crisis at the UN, which is due to face the body’s General Assembly next week. Pompeo did not go into detail on Wednesday but promised that the U.S. “As part of it will do its part – its responsibilities to enable peace, this time in the Middle East.”
“We will do what we need to do to ensure that these sanctions are enforced,” he said.
Reuters reports that Elliott Abrams, the US special envoy for Venezuela and Iran, said the US could deny access to the US market to anyone who trades arms with Iran. Whatever happens, it is likely to lead to U.S. And there will be border relations on Turtle Bay between other members of the international community.
Abram told reporters that sanctions would be imposed on ET at 8pm on Saturday.
“If other nations don’t follow through, I think they should ask … don’t they think they are undermining the structure of UN sanctions,” he said.
Pompeo, meanwhile, said Wednesday that the US was working on a “maximum pressure” strategy against Iran.
“I think that given the Islamic Republic’s position on Iran’s economic situation today, the fact that they can’t write Hezbollah and Shiite militias in places where they have spent money on profitable activities. In all these years, those resources have been greatly reduced, their ability to harm the world has been greatly reduced, ”he said.
