Trump to trigger ‘snapback’ of sanctions on Iran

US President Donald Trump says he will trigger a snapback of sanctions at the United Nations on Iran.

A UN Security Council vote on Friday rejected a bid from the United States to extend an arms embargo on Iran.

Only two of the council’s 15 members voted in favour of the US resolution, highlighting the division between Washington and its European allies since President Donald Trump withdrew from the Iran nuclear accord in May 2018.
