Pompeo promised to prevent the supply of weapons to Iran from Russia and China

The United States is ready to take any measures to prevent Iran from acquiring modern military equipment from other countries, especially Russia and China. This was stated by the head of the US State Department, Mike Pompeo, according to the press service of the US Foreign Ministry.


In an interview, Pompeo said that currently Iran is acting on weapons embargo, which expires in October this year. However, the United States will take all measures to prevent Tehran from acquiring modern "Russian or Chinese armored vehicles."

(...) President Trump and our team are ready to play all the cards in order to be sure that with the onset of October of this year they will not be able to acquire Tanks and armored personnel carriers in Russia and China

- declared Pompeo.

According to him, Washington intends to achieve an extension of the arms embargo in the framework of the Joint Comprehensive Action Plan (JCPOA) on Iran’s nuclear program. The United States hopes that the UN Security Council will adopt a new resolution restricting Iran from acquiring new weapons abroad.

We work with our partners from China, Russia, Britain, France, in a broader sense - with partners in the UN Security Council to gain confidence that they are also ready to prevent this from October 18

- noted the head of the State Department.

The Russian Foreign Ministry previously stated that the five-year special regime for the supply of arms and military equipment to Iran, introduced in 2015, should expire and there can be no deviations from this decision according to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), from which, by the way, the United States withdrew in 2018 . At the same time, in the UN Security Council, the issue of extending the arms embargo against Iran is not on the agenda.

        The mattresses were quite ridiculous both against Russia (sanctions, an obstacle to the implementation of the Nord Stream-2 and Russian weapons, S-400 in particular) and against China (with a trade war and an attempt to recover damage from it for a coronavirus), so that after Five-year embargo, Russia and China agreed to follow in the interests of the United States. There will be bamboo mattresses and balalaika.

      They didn’t run away, but "washed away in time" From the Yankees' point of view, the contract is bad because it ends. American democracy in Iran does not steer from the word at all, the IAEA dances to the Russian tune. The goals are not achieved. The embargo ends. Everything is lost. Chef Plaster is removed, the client leaves. Need a new contract. And then Russia Varshavyanka can deliver 2 pieces in 6 years, without particularly overloading its shipyards - This is horror flying on the wings of the night right into Capitol Hill

We hire lawyers from the outside. Can’t we bring up our draggers? A veto should be used as the penultimate argument.

          The only advantage of the United States is that the Russian Federation and China, for completely incomprehensible reasons, do not pursue a mirror policy towards the Americans - they do not create the United States Problems in the United States itself. The best defense is offensive.

      Well, the United States is leaving Europe and NATO, cutting the military budget by 10 times, trillion dollars in compensation for Russia and China, and signing a new embargo is easy.

    Iran can get a full upgrade of its air defense and air force. From Russia or China. But he has nothing to pay with Russia. So far, oil is too cheap. But China will take oil in payment. Only how can Pompeo prevent China from bartering with Iran - oil in exchange for weapons? Especially if the transport will be Chinese.

    Out of “principle”, Russia should help its enemies with defensive means. And the fact that the United States was worried about the supply of Russian and Chinese weapons to Iran can only speak of the “highest” characteristics of the US and the Pentagon’s comprehensive ability to conduct foreign policy with the help of armed pressure.

    Pompeo promised to prevent the supply of weapons to Iran from Russia and China


    Let's go to the second round.
    - in 2007 - An agreement was signed between Russia and Iran on the supply of S-300 and 100 units. Tu-204, transaction amount 3 billion.
    - in 2010 - Medvedev signed a decree banning supplies of S-300 to Iran in response to a UN resolution. Iran presented a penalty with interest on the amount already paid by it for an outstanding agreement.
    - 2015 - Putin lifted the ban on the sale of S-300 to Iran.
    As a result, S-300s were delivered to Iran, but Iran still had a “sediment”.
    The main lobbyist in the United States against the supply of S-300 to Iran was Israel.
