US attempt to extend arms embargo against Iran fails

US attempt to extend weapons the embargo against Iran did not pass, the draft American resolution did not get the required number of votes in the UN Security Council.


According to the results of the vote, the United States and the Dominican Republic voted "for" the extension of restrictions against Iran, and Russia and China "against". Another 11 members of the UN Security Council abstained.

The head of the US State Department, Mike Pompeo, accused the UN Security Council of creating conditions under which the "main sponsor of terrorism" (Iran - approx.) Was able to buy weapons. At the same time, he stressed that the United States reserves the right to continue "working" so that Iran cannot sell and buy weapons after the expiration of the embargo and "threaten the heart of Europe, the Middle East and the world as a whole."

The UN Security Council is responsible for maintaining international peace and security. Today he was unable to fulfill his main mission. He rejected a sensible resolution to extend the 13-year arms embargo against Iran and created conditions for the world's main sponsor of terrorism to buy and sell conventional weapons without special restrictions from the UN.

- said in a statement.

In turn, the Permanent Representative of the United States to the UN, Kelly Kraft, said that in the coming days the United States will make another effort to renew sanctions against Iran.

Pursuant to Resolution 2231, the United States has every right to initiate a review of the provisions of previous Security Council resolutions. In the coming days, the United States will deliver on its pledge to stop at nothing to extend the arms embargo

- emphasized Kraft.

Recall that the arms embargo against Iran expires on October 18, 2020. According to Russia, which is supported by China, after that the issue of restrictions against Iran will be closed.

      The voters were equally divided. 11 are afraid, but do not agree with the USA, one (DR) frankly pushed, because in my heart I do not understand what they care about Iran and the supply of weapons there. Russia and China, as partners and concurrently the main potential sellers of arms to Iran, are clearly sticking to their line.

      Apparently, Iran will consider Russia and China as the main suppliers. they are least of all dependent on the whims of the "hegemon", which will ensure the supply of second-hand and components in case of war, but which of the two will be the main supplier, then everything will depend on the ratio of parameters - price and quality.

    From a sore head to a healthy one. It is already obvious to the whole world that the "main sponsor of terrorism" on planet Earth is the United States.
    And it is Israel's idea to blame Iran for terrorism.

    Well Duc in the Iranian arms market nothing shines for American companies. tongue But Russian and Chinese gunsmiths have already drunk champagne and are preparing to arrange ready-to-wear for planes, tanks, ships, cannons, radio stations, antiaircraft guns, etc., etc. And so on. It is only Iran's severe need for hundreds of fighters that is like Viagra. wassat There will be something to discuss.

    did not get the required number of votes in the UN Security Council.
    The Americans are playing hegemony. 11 members of the UN Security Council abstained, which means they did not "softly" support the United States. Judging by the American statements, this not only upset them, but infuriated them, tk. you cannot poke a veto in Russia for a veto that was not required and you cannot accuse Russia of supporting terrorism. They will continue to press alone with the "huge" support of the Dominican Republic.

    Iran is returning to big politics. Let's see how Israel behaves. Iran urgently needs to supply air defense systems. It will be very difficult to compete with the Chinese. They have plans to invest in Iran $ 100-150 billion and they will probably, and this is right on their part, will demand from Iran to protect its investments in the Iranian economy only with Chinese weapons. We need to jump over our heads to conclude contracts with Iran. hi

          "friendship" between Russia and Israel will greatly influence Iran not in favor of the Russian Federation. in general, for a number of objective and subjective reasons, Russia is rapidly losing the arms market, sadly but true.

    Unfortunately, in this situation, Pompeo is absolutely right - de jure, the leading terrorist regime in the Middle East has acquired the right to purchase modern weapons. For the region, this will result in one thing - a powerful permanent factor of instability.
    Fortunately, there is a certain difference between legal and practical options.

      De facto, Iran can only influence unstable states such as Syria and Iraq and Yemen ... whose statehood was not violated by Iran and Iran does not want a bridgehead to appear on its borders to attack itself. Iran's land weapons of any level cannot threaten any of the enemies - there is no common border ... and the emergence of modern aviation will only increase the air defense of Iran itself, making it difficult to strike on its territory.

        But what about Lebanon with the Shiite Hezbollah, which has already substituted Lebanon several times, and is a hotbed of instability for Lebanon? In addition, the Houthis began to attack the Saudis and try to create a hotbed of instability in them. In the case of the Houthis, Iran, a model was tested according to which they wanted to destabilize all Arab monarchies in the BW. Iran's idea is not to secure its borders, but to set fire to the borders of other states. So I agree with the previous speaker, Iran is a terrorist regime to which the UN has given permission to buy weapons. Somehow it all smells very bad. It seems that Europka decided to kindle a fire on the BV and warm the little hands in it.

            So I don't understand, is he a lamb who just wants to live, or a wolf who attacks to devour? You described Iran as a self-contained state that simply defends itself, and for this it was carried to Lebanon, Yemen, Syria and even to Gaza ??? Although Israel is located 2000 km from this "peace-loving" state. Moreover, I want to note that the explosions in Buenos Aeres of the Israeli community center in 1992, Israel did not provoke at all. The terrorist insides of this "defender of its borders" simply showed up. And now weapons will be thrown at him, and then BV will dance in new, fiery colors - "burn, burn, it is clear that it does not go out." The Americans have already responded to the gray eminence - China, Taiwan will now receive American weapons worth 62 billion. I think other amateurs (who voted against the embargo at the UN) will also be discharged to warm their sweaty palms in the war.

                    Of course not - the country as such cannot be called a terrorist group at all. And any country has the right to its own defense, including with the help of modern weapons.
                    The problem is in the theocratic regime of Iran, whose top officials publicly make statements that are unacceptable in their aggressiveness against other states. In order to regularly try to implement this aggressive rhetoric, the Ayatollah regime has the IRGC, a powerful quasi-military organization with all types of troops parallel to the official Armed Forces.

                      Many respected states have such units. Compare the number of victims of Hezbollah and the pro-Turkish units in BV. Recently. The SA has the same.
                      Recently, in general, all military actions of states go through various PMCs and proxy forces.

                        The Turks use the services of the Syrian Turkomans, but they have no Ksir of their own. The Iranians have proxies - Hezbollah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad. And then there is an organization that is similar in composition to the SS troops in Nazi Germany. No other country has similar divisions.

        Of the republics of the former Soviet Union, Iran shares borders with Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan and Armenia. The possible emergence of modern ground weapons on the border of these states is strategically undesirable for us. Plus the Iranian Navy in the Caspian Sea, on the other side of which is Russia.
        The oil monarchies issued a joint statement against the lifting of the embargo, which was ignored - they have reason to believe that modern weapons can be directed against them.
        Iraq is practically defenseless.
        Well, Syria. It doesn't look like we're going to leave. On the contrary, today it is a zone of our strategic interests. And the strengthening of Iran in Syria, which is there officially and by invitation, is absolutely useless to us.
        So far, only the position of Erdogan is not known, who, due to the common border with Iran and the presence of Turkish troops in Syria, this also applies ..
