According to Bedminster, New Jersey, USA, on August 15, trump said at a press conference held by his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, that he intended to take action at the United Nations to trigger the “rapid resumption of sanctions” mechanism against Iran.
trump told reporters: “we are about to carry out the” rapid recovery of sanctions. “. You’ll see it next week. ” Just a day earlier, the United States tried to extend the UN arms embargo on Iran, but it was rejected by the UN Security Council.
it is reported that although trump abandoned the Iran nuclear agreement in 2018, the United States has been threatening to use a clause in the agreement to trigger a mechanism called “rapid recovery of sanctions”, that is, to resume all UN sanctions against Iran. Diplomats have been saying that if it does, the US will face a tough and chaotic battle.
Iranian President ruhani delivered a television speech on the 15th local time, saying: “in order to crack down on the Islamic Republic of Iran, the United States has prepared for several months for a draft resolution, but only won one vote. We have won a great victory, and this plot of the United States has been completely defeated. ” On the occasion of the 888 day visit of the United States, Secretary of state Pei Ao said that during his visit to Poland on the 15th, it was a serious mistake. We regret that. ”
according to the Wall Street Journal website on August 15, for several months, trump government officials have been threatening to use a clause in the multilateral nuclear agreement reached between Iran and six world powers in 2015 to restore UN sanctions against Tehran.
according to the report, this effort is expected to be questioned by other members of the Security Council, who may argue that the United States is not qualified to resume United Nations sanctions because trump asked the United States to withdraw from the nuclear agreement.
the five-year ban on the export of conventional weapons to Iraq will expire in October this year. European diplomats have said lifting the UN embargo may have little impact on the regional balance of power in the short term because Iran is short of money and Europe has its own arms ban.
