Pompeo: US to press ahead with efforts to extend Iran arms embargo


US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday said the US administration will press ahead with efforts to extend a UN arms embargo on Tehran.


The Security Council will make an absolute mockery of its mission to maintain international peace and security if it were to allow Iran, the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism, to buy and sell weapons openly, Pompeo said.


We are not going to let the arms embargo on Iran expire on October 18, he added.
