U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is pushing at the United Nations to prolong the arms embargo against Iran. Under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which solved the issue of Iran’s civil nuclear program, the current arms embargo will be lifted in October.
The U.S., which has left the JCPoA agreement, is using nonsensical arguments to force a renewed embargo. Other UN Security Council veto veto members will obviously reject the move. Pompeo’s actions do not have the purpose to achieve something. They are campaign material targeted at a domestic audience.
Part of Pompeo’s campaign is a push of ‘scary Iran’ propaganda.
