Discussing the UN arms embargo on Iran due to expire in October, the U.S. ambassador to the UN asserted that “we’re going to be using every tool in our toolbox, because the Trump administration will not back down until we have this arms embargo renewed… Not for one second are we going to back down or exhale until we know that the entire Middle East region is going to be safe. And that means a renewed arms embargo before 18 October”.
