Pompeo Says China, Iran, And Russia Causing Global Instability

Posted December 05, 2018

Iranian officials have repeatedly underscored that the country will not hesitate to strengthen its military capabilities, including its missile power, which are entirely meant for defense, and that Iran's defense capabilities will be never subject to negotiations. It does not, in fact, ban Iran from undertaking any activity related to ballistic missiles, a point of criticism for opponents of the deal. "We will continue to both develop and test missiles".

On Sunday, a senior Iranian official said the country's missile program was not in breach of United Nations resolutions.

Iranian military leaders on Sunday vowed to press ahead with weapons testing of intermediate and long-range missiles, as well as other advanced arms systems, which have been banned by sanctions issued by the US and United Nations.

On Twitter he wrote that "the regime and its allies are using this as an excuse to launch a military operation in north Syria". He said the symptoms included red eyes, heart palpitations and difficulty breathing.

The statement came shortly after Security Council met behind closed-doors to discuss alleged Iran's latest missile test, which the United States and its allies said may have been in violation of Resolution 2231.

"The Iranian regime has just test-fired a medium range ballistic missile that's capable of carrying multiple warheads", he wrote in the tweet.

In a public statement before the closed door talks, Netanyahu thanked Pompeo for the administration's "strong" stance on Iran, and said he looked forward to discussing joint Israeli-US efforts to "curb Iran's aggression in the region, in Syria, in Iraq, in Lebanon and elsewhere".

WASHINGTON: The United States urged the European Union on Monday to apply sanctions targeting Iran´s ballistic missile program, calling it a "grave and escalating threat".

Ballard told the newspaper that the pair had been arguing all day Saturday because he wanted to get back together and she did not. Police said David Johnson, 54, shot Carli Cronin, 30, around 2.30 pm at the Walmart at 4980 East Silver Springs Boulevard.

Pompeo criticised Iran and China in his speech, rejecting suggestions that Washington was acting unilaterally.

In a twist on Trump's "America First" policy, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Trump was not abandoning its global leadership but instead reshaping the post-World War Two system on the basis of sovereign states, not multilateral institutions. This test violates UNSCR 2231.

Resolution 2231 was passed in 2015 to endorse the freshly-signed deal between Iran and leading world nations (known as JPOC). Adversaries and allies alike have denounced perceived US unilateralism and the disregarding of established global diplomatic bodies. The European parties to the nuclear deal have refused to pull out and said they would seek ways to continue trade with Iran. He added that while the strategic threat from Iran was less significant globally than the one from North Korea, he said it was regionally significant. It has withdrawn from the Paris climate accord, the Iran nuclear deal, the U.N.'s top human rights and educational agencies and the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal with Pacific Rim nations. "Our support for JCPOA in no way lessens our concern at Iran's destabilising missile programme and determination that it should cease".
