Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke to reporters at the U.N. Security Council shortly after delivering a letter that would trigger “snapback” sanctions against Iran and extend the arms embargo. He talked about the lack of support from Europe. “Our friends in Germany, France and the United Kingdom, the E3, all told me privately that they don’t want the arms embargo lifted either and yet today, in the end, they provided no alternatives, no options. No country but the United States has had the courage and conviction to put forward a resolution. Instead they chose to side with the Ayatollahs...” Secretary Pompeo told reporters. The move has raised concerns by the other member states of the Iran deal - China, Russia, the United Kingdom, Germany and France, who stated the the U.S. does not have unilateral power to proceed since they withdrew from the deal in 2018. close
