US reinstates UN sanctions on Iran, other countries around the world upset

Washington: The Trump administration announced on Saturday that all UN sanctions against Iran had been reinstated. This measure was rejected by the rest of the world and before the meeting of the United Nations General Assembly there was a lot of vigor in this global body. The move came a month after Foreign Minister Mike Pompeo told the Security Council that Iran was not meeting its obligations under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or the JCPOA (Iran 2015 nuclear deal) .

He said in a statement at 8 p.m. local time, “The United States has taken this step because, along with Iran’s failure to meet JCPOA obligations, the Security Council has also failed to extend the period. arms embargo against Iran, which 13 had been for years. He said: “In accordance with our rights, we have started our recovery process (a kind of legal process) to restore United Nations sanctions.” , including the arms embargo, so the world will be safe.

But other members of the Security Council have firmly opposed America’s move and are determined to ignore it. He says the US has lost its legal right because President Donald Trump withdrew from the nuclear deal in 2018 and imposed US sanctions on Iran. The snapback implies that loopholes or restrictions imposed as part of the nuclear deal can be reimposed by member countries of the United Nations.
