Pompeo urges UN to extend arms embargo on Iran

WASHINGTON (US) – US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday urged the UN Security Council to prolong the arms embargo on Iran. He said the US and allies seized a vessel last month carrying weapons for Houthi rebels in Yemen.

“The Security Council must extend the arms embargo on Iran to prevent further conflict in the region,” Pompeo told a State Department news conference. “No serious person can possibly believe Iran will use any weapon it receives for peaceful ends.”
