Pompeo Warns Russia, China Against Ignoring Move to Reimpose U.N. Sanctions on Iran

WASHINGTON – The US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has warned Russia and China not to ignore the reimposition of all United Nations sanctions on Iran, which President Donald Trump ordered him to trigger Thursday in the United Nations Security Council in New York.
Pompeo will meet with Indonesian United Nations Ambassador Dian Triansyah Djani – chairman of the board for August – to file a complaint about Iran’s failure to comply with a 2015 nuclear deal, even though Washington abandoned the agreement in 2018.
The nuclear deal between Iran, Russia, China, Germany, Britain, France and the United States aimed to prevent Tehran from developing nuclear weapons in return for sanctions relief. This agreement is enshrined in a 2015 Security Council resolution.
In response to what the United States calls its “maximum pressure” campaign of unilateral sanctions – an attempt to get Iran to negotiate a new deal – Tehran has crossed the central limits of the 2015 pact, including its enriched uranium stockpile.
Diplomats say the so-called resumption of sanctions process will be complicated as Russia, China and other countries question the legality of the U.S. move as Washington itself no longer complies with what Trump called it the “worst deal ever.”
Given questions about the U.S. decision, diplomats said Russia, China and other countries would likely ignore it and probably not reimpose sanctions on Iran.
When asked if the United States would target Russia and China with sanctions if it refuses to reimpose United Nations measures on Iran, Pompeo told Fox News on Wednesday: “Absolutely.”
“We’ve done this before, where we’ve seen a country violate… current U.S. sanctions, we’ve held every nation accountable for that. We will do the same about the broader U.N. Security Council sanctions,” he said.
The United States had threatened to use the resumption of sanctions provided in the nuclear deal after losing an offer to the Security Council on Friday to extend an arms embargo in Tehran, which is due to expire in October.
Pompeo said he was unfortunate that European council members abstained on the U.S. attempt to extend the arms embargo and that the move “makes Europeans less secure”.
“They’re just married to this crazy nuclear deal, they’re trying to hang on to it,” he said.
Once Pompeo submits the complaint against Iran to the Security Council, the body has 30 days to pass a resolution to extend sanctions relief for Tehran; otherwise, the measures will automatically be reinstated. The United States would veto any attempt to expand sanctions relief.
Pompeo will also meet with U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Thursday.
