The press writes that even the closest allies of the Americans spoke out against the US initiative on Iran at the UN

A precedent unprecedented in recent years has happened at the United Nations. The closest partners and allies of the United States of America opposed their initiative. This initiative consisted in restoring the previously lifted sanctions against Iran.


The discussion of the American proposal related to the introduction of an updated package of sanctions against Iran took place in the UN Security Council. Fifteen members of the Security Council, both permanent and temporary, expressed their opinion on this issue.

The United States insists on the imposition of sanctions against Iran, stating the need to comply with Resolution 2231. This resolution provides for the restoration of sanctions on the initiative of any party to the agreement in the event that Iran does not fulfill its obligations under the plan to abandon its nuclear program.

For the United States, the problem is that it had previously withdrawn from the agreement on the Iranian nuclear program.

The totals were discouraging for the United States. 13 out of 15 members of the UN Security Council spoke out against the American idea. It is reported by "Lenta" with reference to "Interfax".

It is noteworthy that for the first time in all recent years, Great Britain spoke out against the US initiative. Also opposed were the delegations of France, Belgium, Germany - these are those who are usually positioned as an ally of the United States (including the NATO bloc).

Earlier it was reported that the United States refused to convene the UN Security Council on the issue of the American initiative.

Dmitry Polyansky, Deputy Representative of the Russian Federation to the UN:

After the groundless statement, they launched a mechanism to return the sanctions. Our American colleagues objected to the Security Council meeting to discuss the situation around the implementation of Resolution 2231.

    Well, how can I not remember - "And you, Brutus?" "Caesar" of course has not yet been killed, but gradually everything is moving towards this.

      Perhaps this is done to annoy Trump, especially before the elections. He will not have time to jump into the last carriage on the hike.

      I think - while Trump personally got everyone. So they shit as they can .. Well, what an idiot you have to be - first, defiantly withdraw from the agreement and then - brazenly demand sanctions for its failure to comply .. what

    It seems that the "peaceful, innocent" Israel is generally treated even worse than the "feisty, aggressive" Iran, perhaps because in fact everyone sees exactly Israel's aggression? This week the Syrians were fired upon ...
    As fshu dodavat, you look and Israel will fall under the world sanctions instead of Iran.

      Who is talking about what, but lousy about the bath (s). Everyone, and Europeans in particular, needs Iranian money. Therefore, we went against the United States. There is generally no connection with the degree of anger. The Arabs almost do not consider Israel an enemy - a couple of stoned Shiite mongrels do not count. But Iran is considered a dangerous enemy by almost all of its Sunni neighbors. When the Europeans see an opportunity to profit, they become violet about the lack of democracy in Iran, and the destruction of its population by the Ayatollahs, and the terrorist activities of the IRGC abroad. That is, all the principles of European democracies, with which they climb into Russia, Belarus and other post-Soviet countries, do not matter if there is an opportunity to profit. So they nurtured Hitler in their time. How it ended for the world, everyone remembers very well.

    In general, only Russia and China were against it, 2 countries were in favor and 11 countries abstained.
    The author could write that the initiative did not pass, but why lie and write news of which is more than a week?

      which news is more than a week?

      The author might have written that this is the second "failure" of the shatov - an attempt to extend the arms embargo was thwarted a week ago, and now there is an attempt to restore sanctions through the UN
      US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo on Thursday [Aug 20] personally conveyed to the Chairman of the UN Security Council Washington's request to begin the procedure for reinstating the organization's sanctions against Iran. According to the United States, the sanctions may begin to operate again in 30 days. According to the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on the Iranian nuclear program, any party to the agreement (Russia, USA, UK, China, France, Germany) can launch the procedure for the return of sanctions against Iran if it violates the terms of the deal. The United States withdrew from the JCPOA in 2018. https://tass.ru/mezhdunarodnaya-panorama/9253231

    It is the Americans in the State Department who call their proposals an initiative, while in the world this is a well-known rotten dish called the "American ultimatum." Apparently the majority is already sick of it. I wonder who else is not full? fool

      Supported by the US Dominican Republic. Against Russia and China. The rest abstained. Among those who did not support the United States, including Washington's allies: Great Britain, France, Germany, Belgium, Estonia.

    Refugees hold Europe for a soft spot. They are afraid that the Iranians will add to the pile of problems and do not want to. It is logical, you can understand. Moreover, France, the United Arab Emirates and Greece agreed with Italy, Turkey and Qatar on the Libyan platform
