Pompeo urges the international community to resume arms embargo against Iran


MONTEVIDEO (Sputnik) – US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that Iran continues to fail to comply with the resolutions of the Security Council of the United Nations Organization and therefore the international community must resume the arms embargo against the Islamic Republic

“The US Navy intercepted 358 Iranian missiles and other weapons components en route to the Houthis of Yemen. This is another example of how the biggest driver of terror in the world, the Islamic Republic of Iran, continues to challenge the Security Council of the UN, “Pompeo said in his Twitter social network account and added that” the world must reject Iran’s violence and act now to resume the UN arms embargo against Iran that is about to expire. ”

The Navy boarded a boat on the Arabian Sea on February 9, where it found weapons included 150 anti tank missiles of Iranian origin, while in November it intercepted another shipment of weapons at that location, the Department of Defense reported on Thursday, February 13.
Resolution 2231, which the UN Security Council adopted in July 2015 after signing the international nuclear agreement with Iran, set a deadline for sanctions to end on October 18, 2020.
Iran’s nuclear agreement, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Action Plan (PAIC), was signed in 2015 by Iran, China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States, Germany and the European Union.

The agreement required Iran to reduce its nuclear program and severely lower its uranium reserves in exchange for relief from sanctions.

In 2018, United States he retired of the nuclear agreement and reintroduced sanctions against Iran, which led Tehran to largely abandon its obligations.
