Pompeo: US to Submit Iran Arms Embargo at UN Next Week

Forever talking about the Iran arms embargo, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the US will be pushing a vote at the UN Security Council next week to extend the embargo, which is scheduled to expire in November.

Pompeo has demanded it be unconditionally extended, saying that the UN Security Council is obliged to extend it in the name of security, to prevent Iran from buying whatever weapons it wants. The vote will almost certainly fail, with at least Russia and likely China vetoing it.

The embargo was always meant to be a temporary part of the nuclear deal, allowed to expire after a time. Iran is interested in buying defensive arms, particularly from Russia. Russia is inclined to sell to them, particularly with the US and Israel threatening Iran so often.
