Pompeo Urges UN Security Council to Extend Iran Arms Embargo



#iran #iran arms embargo #united nations #middle east #News & Politics
U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo urged the United Nations Security Council to work together to extend an expiring arms embargo on Iran, warning Tehran would quickly become a greater threat to the region if allowed to do so.
“This Chamber has a choice: Stand for international peace and security, as the United Nations’ founders intended, or let the arms embargo on the Islamic Republic of Iran expire, betraying the UN’s mission and its finest ideals -- which we have all pledged to uphold,” Pompeo told the Security Council on Tuesday.
Pompeo said the Islamic Republic’s government could move quickly to buy Russian fighter jets and upgrade its submarine fleet if the embargo expires. And he said Tehran would be “free to become a rogue weapons dealer, supplying arms to fuel conflicts from Venezuela, to Syria, to the far reaches of Afghanistan.”
With the ban on arms transactions with Iran set to expire in October under terms of the 2015 nuclear deal, the U.S. has weighed invoking a “snapback” provision in the accord that would reimpose all UN sanctions against Tehran if the Security Council doesn’t renew the weapons ban indefinitely. Russia and China -- both veto-wielding members of the council -- have already warned they won’t support the move.
“The United States’ overwhelming preference is to work with this council to extend the arms embargo, to protect human life, to protect our national security, and to protect yours,” Pompeo told the council, without directly invoking the threat of a sanctions snapback.
Pompeo argued that Moscow and Beijing should recognize the threat of a better-armed Iran, saying Tehran would threaten stable energy prices they depend on for economic stability. He spoke ahead of an expected address from Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif later in the day.

I don't understand why Pompeo would want to extend the embargo when his boss Trump can make even more money by selling billions of dollars more in weapons to the gullible Gulf Arabs and Saudis. The US is leaving middle east anyways so this only enhances America's money making potential.

Shame on Pompeo ...

by Freeman 3 days ago

What a hypocrite. Pompeo just gave the U.N. International Court the middle finger because they are investigating the USA for War crime violations. Now he wants the U.N. to cooperate with him in support of Israel. You can't have your cake and eat it to. You are either a part of the U.N. or you are not. If you are then you must follow the rules like everyone else.

Us have military bases in over hundreds of countries . Our pour American soldiers and young kids are getting killed for no reason in overseas . World needs to watch us and not other countries . We by the minute are adding enemies to our list by bullying countries around .
World needs peace , world needs friendships and honesty and not people like Pompeo that lies , cheers ,and deceive it’s own people .
People want peace ,,, but Pompeo wants war and blood , so he better just shot up and look for a way to bring peace to our American people and others around the world instead .
