US to demand ‘snapback’ of UNSC sanctions


The US is to controversially initiate a process at the UN Security Council to reinstate international sanctions on Iran lifted under a 2015 nuclear deal, BBC reported.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will submit a complaint accusing Iran of significant non-compliance and trigger the sanctions "snapback" mechanism.

However, other world powers insist he has no legal right to do so.
