In response, Iran’s permanent representative to the United Nations, rawani, said that as a “renegade” of the comprehensive agreement on Iran’s nuclear issue, the United States has long lost its qualification as a participant in the agreement. “This time, the United States wants to exert so-called extreme pressure on the UN Security Council and its member states. The US action is an obvious example of abuse of power, which is not allowed by international law. It is a legal and political bullying,” he said On the same day, US Secretary of state pompeio asked the Security Council to start the “rapid recovery of sanctions” mechanism against Iran, saying that if China and Russia refuse, sanctions will be imposed on China and Russia. The permanent mission of China to the United Nations said that the US side’s request is groundless and unreasonable in accordance with the law. It is purely a self-designed political performance, which cannot be supported by the members of the Security Council and recognized by the international community. Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Zakharova said that the US side’s move was reckless and would eventually fail. The United States has no right to use the authority and power of the United Nations for its own benefit. She called on all countries to boycott the US action. < p > < p > for the US side’s request to start the “rapid recovery of sanctions” mechanism against Iran, the foreign ministers of the United States’ European allies, Britain, France and Germany, have issued a joint statement, saying that “they can not support it.”. In the Security Council vote last week, all three countries abstained. < / P > < p > “we urge the US side to stop acting willfully and defying the world’s will, otherwise it will inevitably run into a wall again.” This afternoon, foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian responded to the US letter to the Security Council. Zhao Lijian said that the participants of the comprehensive agreement and the vast majority of the members of the Security Council believe that the US side’s request does not have any legal basis, and that the “rapid recovery of sanctions” mechanism has not been launched. As far as I know, all parties concerned, including China, Russia, Britain, France, Germany and Iran, have written to the president of the Security Council, and the foreign ministers of Britain, France and Germany have also issued statements expressing their opposition to the US move. Zhao Lijian stressed that the United States’ request for the Security Council to resume sanctions against Iraq is purely a political manipulation to achieve its own political purposes. The United States has broken its promise, retreated and broken the treaty, damaged multilateralism and the authority of the Security Council, and undermined the international nuclear non-proliferation system. Neither the US side promotes the resolution nor sends a letter to the Security Council, nor can it cover the above-mentioned act with legal guise. As the Security Council has rejected the draft resolution of the United States on indefinite extension of the arms embargo against Iran, theoretically speaking, Iran will no longer be subject to the arms embargo and can buy and sell weapons since October 18 this year. The United States and Israel have been negotiating countermeasures to prepare for Iran’s possible purchase of Russia’s s S-400 air defense missile system, the US Defense News reported on the 17th. According to the report, Iran’s air defense system is mainly short-range air defense system, lacking medium and long-range air defense missile system. Russia’s s S-400 air defense missile system just meets Iran’s needs. Iran’s ambassador to Russia, Kazem Jalali, said in July that Iran was interested in buying Russian weapons to “enhance its defense capability.”. This has raised concerns in the United States, Israel and other countries. In early August, F-35 fighters of the U.S. and Israeli air forces held the second joint exercise this year in southern Israel. The purpose of the exercise is to improve the survivability of fighters against complex air defense systems, and to destroy enemy air defense systems and aviation equipment. The report points out that this tactic can be used to counter S-400 air defense missile system.
