Israel Supports US Unilateral Reimposition of Iran Sanctions

Jerusalem / The Israeli government showed its support for the US announcement to unilaterally reimpose sanctions against Iran, which were rejected by the three European countries that signed the 2015 nuclear pact with Tehran, Germany, France and the United Kingdom.

“Even now, Iran continues to be a significant threat to the world and the region. Its leaders continue to move forward with their nuclear project while terrorist ‘proxies’ operate throughout the Middle East, ”said Israeli Defense Minister Benny Gantz.

The “continued pressure of the US government against Iranian aggression is vital and I commend its uncompromising efforts against the Iranian regime in the name of regional stability,” he added.

Also the Foreign Minister, Gaby Ashkenazi, wanted to thank the White House for the “dedicated action, led by President Trump and Secretary (of State Mike) Pompeo at the UN Security Council to prevent the lifting of the arms embargo to Iran “.

Ashkenazi urged all countries to support Washington, “not to sell weapons to Iran and to apply sanctions completely,” and called for a change of opinion from the three European countries involved in the nuclear pact with Tehran.

“I call on our friends, the E3 countries – France, the UK and Germany – to withdraw their opposition and work towards a rigorous implementation of the sanctions regime, both at the state level and in the European Union and in the UN institutions”, he insisted.

The reinstatement of sanctions and Iran’s response

The Iranian government assured this Sunday that the unilateral measure by the United States to reestablish international sanctions against its country is “a great threat” to world peace and to the UN, and warned to give “a serious response” if necessary.

At midnight from Saturday to Sunday, the US unilaterally declared reinstated all international sanctions against Iran that were lifted with the 2015 nuclear deal and threatened to oppose UN members.

In August, Washington initiated a procedure before the UN to reestablish these sanctions, but the majority of the Security Council – including the rest of the powers with the right of veto – consider that the US cannot use this mechanism since it abandoned the pact in 2018.

The Foreign Ministers of Germany, France and the United Kingdom contested the US decision and assured that “the decisions or measures that may be adopted in relation to this process have no legal effects.” (September 21, 2020, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
