US says sanctions on Iran reinstated, but world ignores Washington


The United Nations – Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says UN will not support reimposition of sanctions against Iran The United States requires until he gets the green light from the Security Council.The UN chief said in a letter to the chairman of the board obtained by CBS News on Saturday that “there would appear to be some uncertainty” as to whether or not US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo triggered the mechanism ” backtracking ”in the Security Council resolution which enshrined the 2015 nuclear accord between Iran and six major powers.

The Trump administration said on Saturday that all UN sanctions against Iran have been reinstated, a move that most of the rest of the world rejects as illegal and is likely to ignore. The US announcement is sure to spark controversy at the annual high-level meetings of the UN General Assembly starting Monday, mostly taking place practically this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
