U.S. President trump said on August 19 that the United States would ask the UN Security Council to activate the so-called “rapid recovery of sanctions” mechanism, claiming that the United States, as the initial participant in the comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue, has the right to resume UN sanctions against Iran to prevent its development of nuclear weapons. In this regard, Iran and Russia condemned this attempt by the United States and pointed out that the United States has no such power after withdrawing from the treaty in 2018. On the 19th, Iranian President Rohani said at a cabinet meeting that the U.S. attempt to launch the so-called “rapid recovery of sanctions” mechanism will surely fail again. Rouhani said the United States is no longer a party to the Iran nuclear agreement, and therefore has no right to implement the provisions of the resolution. Rouhani also described the U.S. action as walking into a dead end, and the United States wanted to cross a bridge it had burned down. Russia’s permanent representative to the international organizations in Vienna, ulyanov, said on the 20th that it is a dangerous and rash act for the United States to ask the UN Security Council to start the so-called “rapid recovery of sanctions” mechanism, which is a huge mistake and will be condemned by the international community. Ulyanov also said that the United States has not been a party to the Iran nuclear agreement since May 2018. Zhang Jun, permanent representative of China to the United Nations, also said on the 14th of this month that the United States, as a renegade party to the Iran nuclear agreement, has lost its qualification as a party to the agreement and has no right to ask the Security Council to launch the “rapid recovery of sanctions” mechanism. In a joint statement in June, the foreign ministers of Britain, France and Germany also said that they did not support any attempt to unilaterally launch the “quick recovery of sanctions” mechanism, believing that this would have serious adverse consequences for the Security Council. The U.N. Security Council has voted in writing on the draft resolution proposed by the United States to extend the arms embargo on Iraq indefinitely since June 13. Only the United States and Dominica voted in favor of the draft resolution, but the draft resolution was not adopted.
