Pompeo Rebukes Allies Who Oppose Sanctions on Iran

The United States and other members of the UN Security Council are angry tonight at the US push for “snapback” sanctions on Iran, built around the US dictating what’s going to happen, and the rest of the world seeing the attempt as unseemly.

Pompeo says the move amounts to American leadership, and everyone’s resistance will be viewed as siding with the ayatollahs. Other nations said that in withdrawing from the deal and then trying to use the deal against the parties within it, the US was being “unpleasant.”

The US is arguing that they are still sort of part of the P5+1 nuclear deal, despite publicly disavowing it. The deal had a secret clause allowing the US to force the introduction of a UN resolution on Iran sanctions relief, and then argues that once they veto it, the sanctions will all be de facto back to pre-deal levels.
