Iran envoy to UN: Any return of sanctions will be met severely by Tehran

by Jim W. Dean, VT Editor, …with PressTV, Tehran

[ Editor’s Note: We knew, along with everybody else, the US was going to lose this vote. Pompeo was just going through the motions, as we can expect the US to announce sanctions on anyone doing any arms sales to Iran.

I can’t imagine anyone doing that who was not already on the list, except for some of the EU countries.

China and Russia of course voted no, with eleven abstaining that included Britain, France, and Germany.

The make-believe country, the Dominican Republic, stood with the US for whatever it usually gets paid to do so. China’s UN Ambassador Zhang Jun said the outcome “once again shows that unilateralism receives no support, and bullying will fail.

So I expect any foreign weapons purchases to be made from Russia and China for items Iran might need that it does not make itself. I don’t see Iran being able to afford any of Russia’s top fighters but might manage to get a few older ones.

The other needed areas might include technical items like electronic warfare technology, items that would give Iran a multiplier effect. Expect to see the US do what it seems to love doing, sanctioning anyone that says no… JD ]

The United Nations Security Council has rejected a US resolution to extend an arms embargo on Iran that is due to expire in October, as Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed a summit of world leaders to avoid “confrontation” over an American threat to trigger a return of all  UN sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

“The Security Council’s failure to act decisively in defense of international peace and security is inexcusable,” US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement on Friday before the Security Council announced the results of the vote.

  1. We can say that Macron tricked the US in making the proposition for some days ago he discussed with Trump the necessity of doing something to stop Iran from being free of its sanctions to acquire weapons.

    Next, we cant say ‘per say’ that the World *opposed* the unipolar behavior of the US in rejecting its resolution against Iran, but that the world “challenged” the unipolar stance of the US by… “ABSTAINING” of siding by the US resolution ! for they are TOO COWARD to *oppose* him… yet.

  2. Non sarebbe da buoni cristiani , ma ogni tanto “Occhio per occhio dente per dente” non sarebbe male ed invece di porgere l’altra guancia un bel calcio nel deretano e con le scarpe a punta se lo sono meritato .

  3. “The Security Council’s failure to act decisively in defense of international peace and security is inexcusable,” US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement”. Hahaha he must have been joking right? US is the biggest arms dealer legal AND illegal in the world am I right? As well as an aggressive war mongering nation that likes to puck on the weak and vulnerable. This is one of those “talk about the pot calling the kettle black” moments.

  4. I’d like to see the face of Trump when he wants to used the snapback option that he gave up on his first day of office and so gleefully showed his signature cancelling the JCPOA to his boss in Tel Aviv. Dumb as you can get and he wants to show Iranians how it’s done. Even his lackeys in Europe won’t go for his thuggery and pressure this time.
