The country is not a "responsible democracy" and the Council must continue to hold Iran accountable, said Pompeo at a virtual meeting. “Listen to the countries in the region, Israel, the Gulf States, the countries in the Middle East that are most exposed to the Iranian reenactments. They speak with one voice: prolonged the embargo, »he said.

The United Nations had accepted the agreement. However, the USA withdrew from the agreement in 2018; other countries therefore argue that they now have no right to decide on the further design of the conditions.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called on UN Security Council members to extend the arms embargo on Iran , which expires in October this year. “ We know that the extension of the embargo will put more pressure on Tehran to start acting like a normal state .

The United States has argued that it was an original country participating in the agreement and could therefore trigger the reintroduction of all pre-nuclear sanctions against Iran. Washington has also unilaterally imposed sanctions on Tehran.

Should the embargo expire, this would have far-reaching consequences for the region. "Iran will hold a sword of Damocles over economic stability in the Middle East, endangering countries like Russia and China that rely on stable energy prices," said Pompeo. Both countries are also permanent members of the Security Council and therefore have veto rights. They have already signaled that they do not want to follow the US application. Iran is facing a severe economic crisis because of the US sanctions and, according to the US think tank Soufan, has hardly any funds to buy arms abroad.

"There are political prisoners, no freedom of the press, and significant interference in the foreign policy of other countries in the region," he enumerated. One therefore shares concerns about the limitations of the UN resolution and the embargo. However, even after the embargo, Iran was prohibited from trading arms with non-governmental organizations. "Multilaterism is about obligations and reliability," said Heusgen. "And I want to appeal to everyone to return to and implement Resolution 2231 and the JCPOA nuclear deal."
