Russian Senator Alexei Pushkov harshly criticized the United States' position on Iran and explained the impact of Washington's demands on the United Nations.
According to Pushkov, the attempt to impose anti-Iranian sanctions on the UN Security Council is a challenge to the entire international community.
The US is trying to impose on the UN the resumption of Security Council sanctions against Iran by unilateral actions. This is a direct attack on the powers of the Security Council, the Charter and the role of the UN and international law, - wrote the senator in his microblog.
He also noted that the secretary general of an international organization refused to follow the lead of the United States, because this would mean the recognition of the dictate of the United States towards the UN.
In August, Trump announced that Washington was starting work on launching a procedure for returning UN sanctions on Tehran. At the same time, he said that for this, the States could try to apply dispute resolution mechanisms within the framework of the Joint Comprehensive Action Plan.
As chernayakobra.ru wrote earlier, Germany, Britain and France reject an attempt by the United States to return UN sanctions against Tehran and seek to preserve the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on the Iranian nuclear program. This is stated in a joint statement by the foreign ministers of the three countries.
