Pompeo added that Washington pledges to punish those who violate the sanctions on Iran, warning that there will be repercussions if the United Nations fails to implement the sanctions.
The US Secretary of State made it clear that Washington is re-imposing sanctions to exert maximum financial pressure on the "Iranian regime", stressing that the maximum pressure on Tehran will continue until it stops chaos and bloodshed.
He pointed out that the Trump administration has always realized that "the Iranian regime is the greatest threat to peace in the world," noting that by re-imposing sanctions, "the world will be safer."
"Iran's violent efforts to spread the revolution have killed thousands and destroyed the lives of millions of innocent people," he added.
On 21 August, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo presented at the United Nations headquarters in New York, Washington’s request to the Security Council to activate the trigger mechanism against Iran.
In addition, the mechanism stipulated in Security Council Resolution No. 2,231, which was adopted after the signing of the Iranian nuclear agreement in 2015, provides for the automatic return of all international sanctions against Iran, due to its violations.
