Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a press conference recently that if the U.N. Security Council doesn’t agree to extend the arms embargo against Iran, then the U.S. will seek to “snap back” multilateral sanctions on the regime.
Pompeo made the remarks ahead of a briefing by U.N. Ambassador Kelly Craft and Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook to the Security Council on why the arms embargo should be extended, citing Iran’s behavior since the implementation of the Iranian nuclear deal, including a drone attack on Saudi Arabia in 2019.
“Without action, on the 18th of [October], Iran will be able to purchase advanced weapon systems and become the arms dealer of choice for terrorists and rogue regimes all throughout the world. This is unacceptable,” Pompeo noted.
