Summary

The only country out of 15 to support Washington was the Dominican Republic.A State Department statement Wednesday said: "Secretary Pompeo’s notification to the [U.N. Security] Council follows its inexcusable failure last week to extend the arms embargo on the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism and anti-Semitism."This site is protected by recaptcha Privacy Policy | Terms of ServiceThe move to reimpose U.N. sanctions has drawn criticism from China, Russia and across Europe, and even opposition from John Bolton, the former national security adviser and renowned Iran hawk.Supporters of the nuclear deal maintain it's the best way to delay any attempt by Iran to build nuclear weapons, avoiding a more immediate crisis.Trump pulled the U.S. out of the deal in May 2018, calling it "the worst deal ever negotiated" for allowing Iran a possible path to nuclear weapons in the future.On Thursday, Iran continued to ignore U.S. calls to halt its ballistic missile program, displaying a new cruise missile and surface-to-surface ballistic missiles that its defense minister said had a range of 870 miles.
