China and Russia rap U.S. bid to extend Iran arms embargo

PressTV 7 views
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has called on the UN Security Council to indefinitely extend the arms embargo on Iran.


Pompeo claimed that Iran is already violating the arms embargo with exporting missiles to Ansarullah fighters in Yemen. Russia’s UN envoy, Vasily Nebenzya slammed the US policy of unilateralism. He said the US’s maximum pressure policy is aimed at toppling the Iranian government. The Russian envoy said the US actively undermines the deal and even threatens other signatories not to comply with it. Nebenzya, however, said Iran has remained committed to the agreement despite Washington’s pressures and threats. He stressed that there are no legal grounds for the US to raise the issue of Iran arms embargo at the Security Council.
