US Punishing Nations for Respecting UNSC Resolutions

US Punishing Nations for Respecting UNSC Resolutions US Punishing Nations for Respecting UNSC Resolutions

The US is making history not just by violating a United Nations Security Council resolution it voted for three years ago, but also by penalizing countries who stick to the same unanimous resolution, the Iranian ambassador to the UN says.
Gholamali Khoshroo argues in a commentary published by the Guardian on Wednesday that by abrogating a multilateral 2015 nuclear deal and imposing new sanctions on foreign companies doing business with Iran, the Trump administration is also reneging on UNSC Resolution 2231.
The resolution, unanimously adopted after the nuclear deal was signed in Vienna, calls on UN member states to refrain “from actions that undermine implementation of commitments” under the nuclear accord, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
The new US sanctions, imposed on Tuesday, target Iran’s access to dollars and its ability to trade in gold and other precious metals.
