The United States Thursday officially demanded a reimposition of all UN sanctions on Iran as US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo formally submitted a complaint to the UN secretary-general, despite opposition from Europe, China and Russia.
The prior administration left no doubt that the U.S. has the ability to snap back sanctions on Iran. That's what we intend to do. As President @realDonaldTrump said, we will not continue down a path whose predictable end is more violence, terror, and a nuclear armed Iran. pic.twitter.com/0rrOt8qoO1— Secretary Pompeo (@SecPompeo) August 20, 2020

Amb. of #Russia 🇷🇺 🇺🇳 spoke on the #US invoking #snapback provision in the #UNSC:
“Which snapback? Where is snapback? #Pompeo is not triggering a snapback. Snapback can be triggered by a country that is a participant of the #JCPOA... We consider it as nonexistent.” pic.twitter.com/849Jj9vkzT
