UN Security Council Rejects US Call to Restore All Iran Sanctions

NEW YORK – The President of the United Nations Security Council on Tuesday rejected the US administration Trump’s request to reinstate all UN sanctions against Iran, a move that drew angry criticism from the American Ambassador, who accused opponents of supporting “terrorists”.
Indonesian Ambassador to the UN Dian Triansyah Djani, whose country currently holds the rotating presidency of the Council, made the announcement in response to requests from Russia and China to release the results of his poll on the opinions of the 15 board members on the US action.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo insisted last Thursday that the United States had the legal right to “rollback” on UN sanctions, even though President Donald Trump withdrew from the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and six major powers that were approved by the UN Security Council.
All board members except the Dominican Republic had informed the board chair that the US administration’s action was illegal because Trump had withdrawn from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA, in 2018.
Djani told members on Tuesday after a virtual meeting on the Middle East that there was no general agreement among Council members.
“Having contacted members and received letters from many member countries, it is clear to me that there is one member who has a special position on the issues, while there is a significant number of members who have different opinions,” he said.
“In my opinion, there is no consensus in the council,” Djani said. “So the president is not in a position to take further action.”
This means that the most powerful organ of the United Nations, at least during the Indonesian presidency, will not respond to the American demand.
Niger takes over the presidency of the Council in September, and its Ambassador also sent a joint letter with South Africa, Tunisia and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines calling on the “ineligible” United States to trigger a “return back” because they are not part of the JCPOA. It is, therefore, likely that it ignores US demand.
The US mission to the UN subsequently issued a statement claiming that the United States “had a solid legal basis for initiating the reinstatement of sanctions” under the Security Council resolution that approved the 2015 nuclear deal.
“The fact that some board members expressed their disagreement with our legal position in an informal (virtual) meeting has no legal effect,” the mission said.
Mr. Pompeo came to the United Nations after the Security Council categorically rejected a US resolution aimed at indefinitely extending the United Nations arms embargo against Iran, which is due to expire on October 18. Only the Dominican Republic supported the United States.
US Ambassador Kelly Craft reiterated Pompeo’s message on Tuesday: “The United States will never allow the world’s largest terrorist sponsor state to freely buy and sell airplanes, tanks, missiles, and other kinds of conventional and non-conventional weapons.”
She said that it was Russia and China that “revel in the dysfunction and failure of this council,” Iran “which celebrates its new leverage on the free nations of the world” and Hezbollah, the Houthis and Nicolas Maduro’s regime in Venezuela who welcome the possibility of new Iranian weapons and support. She also criticized European nations for opposing the “backtracking”.
“The Trump administration has no fear of going public in this matter in light of the indisputable truth in guiding our actions,” she said.
“I only regret that the other members of this Council have lost their way and are now in the company of terrorists.”
Russian Ambassador to the UN Vassily Nebenzia called the Council President’s decision a “prudent step”, saying that virtually the entire Council had “confirmed the paramount need to preserve the JCPOA”, which he called important for the whole community.
