According to the times on the 20th, the United States put pressure on Britain on the evening of the 19th to support its move to re impose sanctions on Iran, and questioned whether Britain “supports allowing the world’s largest sponsor country to buy and sell weapons.”. A senior US diplomat has asked British Prime Minister Johnson to clarify his position, according to the report. U.S. Secretary of state pompeio will use a rarely used mechanism at the United Nations on the 20th to try to impose economic sanctions on Iran. Pompeio will try to “snap back” all UN sanctions against Iran and is expected to file a complaint against Tehran’s enriched uranium stockpile on the ground that Iran has not complied with the terms of the Iran nuclear agreement, according to the report. Under the Iran nuclear agreement signed in 2015, Tehran agreed to limit its sensitive nuclear activities in exchange for lifting severe economic sanctions. According to the report, Britain, France and Germany (known as the “three European countries” or “E3”) are still parties to the Iran nuclear agreement, but US President trump called the agreement “the worst agreement ever” and unilaterally announced that the United States withdrew from the agreement in 2018. The Iran nuclear agreement includes an arms embargo on Iran, which came into force in 2007 and will expire in mid October this year. The United States wants to extend the arms embargo, but its draft resolution was vetoed at the UN Security Council meeting last week. E3 countries abstained from voting, which disappointed the trump administration. The British government insists that, given Iran’s “destabilizing influence” in the Middle East, the UK supports the extension in principle, but believes that the US plan cannot be implemented because it cannot be agreed by Russia and China. To this end, pompeio will consider adopting the “rapid recovery” mechanism in the agreement to restore all the UN sanctions that are about to be suspended. The EU and Iran argue that since the US withdrew from the agreement, the US is no longer a party to any such mechanism. However, the United States claimed that it was still a party to the agreement after it withdrew, because it was listed as a participant in a relevant resolution adopted by the UN Security Council in 2015. U.S. supporters claim that the U.N. resolution is legally binding, while Iran’s nuclear agreement does not. “The central question is whether Britain supports allowing the world’s largest sponsor to buy and sell weapons,” said Kelly Kraft, the U.S. permanent representative to the United Nations. Our government has repeatedly stated that the United States will never allow this to happen. ” U.S. President trump promised “Iran will never possess nuclear weapons” at a press conference held at the White House on the evening of 19. A spokesman for the British government said, “we share the concerns of the United States over Iran’s nuclear proliferation and its impact on regional security.” Last week, a British government spokesman said, “we have made it clear that ending the arms embargo on Iran will have a serious negative impact on regional security and stability.” Britain abstained from voting at the UN because “the US draft resolution is not the basis for consensus”.
