US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo threatened Moscow with a response if Russia and China do not comply with the sanctions regime against Iran. He said this on Fox News.

Pompeo promised that then Washington will impose restrictions against Moscow. “We have already done this when we saw that countries violated existing us sanctions. We have held every country accountable for this and we will do the same for broader UN sanctions,” the US Secretary of state assured.

Earlier, the state Department said that Washington will restore all restrictions against Tehran in 30 days. The requirement that Iran suspend all activities related to uranium enrichment will also come into force again.

The UN Security Council rejected a us resolution to extend the arms embargo against Iran. US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo said that now the world sponsor of terrorism will be able to freely sell and buy conventional weapons. He also assured that the US will continue to work to restrict the export of weapons from Iran and imports to the country.

The US has repeatedly demanded an extension of the ban on arms deliveries to Iran, which expires on October 18, 2020, in accordance with the terms of the so-called Tehran nuclear deal with the US, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany. At the same time, in 2018, the American side announced its withdrawal from this agreement and threatened Iran with additional sanctions.
