The “draft resolution on extending the arms embargo against Iran” submitted by the United States has not been adopted by the UN Security Council, which upset US Secretary of state pompeio. On the evening of 16th local time, pompeio said that “no other country” could prevent the United States from implementing “multilateral” sanctions against Iran. However, it was embarrassing that he immediately received “ridicule” from Russian media. On the 17th, Russia today (RT) mentioned a number of netizens’ comments satirizing pompeio. Some people thought that pompeio obviously did not understand what “multilateral” means. “In any case, if the United States believes that Iran has not fulfilled its commitments, no other country can prevent us from rapidly restoring our ability to implement these multilateral sanctions,” pompeio said in a statement on his official twitter on the evening of 16 local time Pompeio’s anger stems from his dissatisfaction with the UN’s failure to adopt its resolution. On the 14th of this month, the UN Security Council failed to adopt the draft resolution on the extension of the arms embargo against Iran proposed by the United States: among the 15 members of the Security Council, only the United States and the Dominican Republic voted for it, Russia and China voted against it, and the remaining 11 Member States, including Britain, France and Germany, abstained. According to the rules of procedure of the Council, the adoption of a resolution requires at least nine votes in favour and no one of the permanent members can vote against it. < / P > < p > “of the 15 member states, only the Dominican Republic is on the US side.” Rt said it was clearly a failure to humiliate the United States. Kelly Kraft, permanent representative of the United States to the United Nations, also said that the United States will spare no effort to promote sanctions against Iran and claimed that the United States “has full right” to implement so-called “rapid” sanctions against Iran. According to RT, pompeio’s interpretation of “multilateral (sanctions)” and his deliberate disregard for the possible opposition of other parties (Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany) to the Iran nuclear agreement has puzzled many netizens. < / P > < p > “other countries can certainly prevent the United States from imposing multilateral sanctions. The United States can impose sanctions on its own, but it cannot force other countries to do the same. (this administration cannot persuade other countries to do so. This is what multilateral means. Is our Secretary of state really so stupid? ” Nicholas Grossman, assistant professor of political science at the University of Illinois. Daniel larison, senior editor of American conservative magazine, said, “I know, (pompeio) still doesn’t understand what” multilateral “is.” Dan Murphy, a former Middle East and South Asian journalist for the Christian Science Monitor, said that “no other country can prevent us from rapidly restoring our ability to implement these multilateral sanctions” is one of the least diplomatic sentences in history. Pompeio knows that. I guess the end result is alienating the rest of the world to satisfy his delusion of persecution? In May 2018, the United States unilaterally withdrew from the Iran nuclear agreement, then restarted and added a series of sanctions against Iraq. Rt said that although the United States has withdrawn from the Iran nuclear agreement, it is reported that the United States is still sending a memorandum to members of the United Nations Security Council, claiming that it is still a member of the agreement.
