"The United States unilaterally announced tonight (Sunday) that UN sanctions against Iran have returned to force and has promised to punish those who violate them." Today the United States welcomes the return of almost all UN sanctions previously imposed on Iran, "he said. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

The administration of US President Donald Trump has also threatened the "consequences" that are expected for any country that does not comply with sanctions, even though it is one of the only countries in the world that believes they are valid.



The threat is enormous: Whoever is considered opposed to the imposition of sanctions by Washington will not have access to the financial system and markets in the United States.

"If UN member states do not fulfill their obligations to implement these sanctions, the United States is willing to use our authorities to charge a price for it and ensure that Iran does not derive benefits from UN-prohibited activities," Pompeo clarified.

"Any decision or action aimed at re-imposing the sanctions is not legally valid," France, Britain and Germany clarified in a joint letter sent to the Security Council.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said last night that the Americans themselves understand that this statement is a "false claim".



In mid-August, the Trump administration suffered a defeat at the UN Security Council when it tried to extend the embargo on the sale of conventional weapons to Tehran, which was due to end in October. On August 20, Pompeo announced a controversial move known as the "snapback" aimed at re-imposing all sanctions against Tehran within a month. The



sanctions were lifted in 2015, when Iran signed an international agreement not to continue the nuclear weapons process. The United States withdrew from the agreement in 2018, then renewed and even intensified Washington's sanctions against Iran.
