Washington’s efforts to get the United Nations Security Council to extend the Iran arms embargo failed Friday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said, calling the result "inexcusable."
The @UN Security Council failed today to hold Iran accountable. It enabled the world’s top state sponsor of terrorism to buy and sell deadly weapons and ignored the demands of countries in the Middle East. America will continue to work to correct this mistake.— Secretary Pompeo (@SecPompeo) August 14, 2020
The @POTUS Trump administration works and speaks with total clarity on this issue. The United States will not abandon the region to Iranian terror and intimidation, and when we look for partners in that effort, we will look beyond the @UN Security Council. https://t.co/tUHmSqeuIU— Ambassador Kelly Craft (@USAmbUN) August 14, 2020
