Zarif to publish important letter in few hours

TEHRAN, Aug. 20 (MNA) – Due to the illegal US measures for activating the trigger mechanism against Iran, Iranian FM Zarif is to publish an important letter within the next few hours.

As reported, the letter will discuss the legal and political aspects of the US illegal act.

The letter will be circulated in international organizations and bodies and some parts of it will be released by the media.

No further details have been released about this letter by the present moment.

While the United Nations Security Council resoundingly rejected last Friday a US bid to extend an arms embargo on Iran, which is due to expire in October, the US President Donald Trump has said the State Department will soon attempt to trigger a “snap back” of UN sanctions on Iran, as the top American diplomat threatened consequences for Moscow and Beijing if they try to block the effort.

“Today I'm directing the Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to notify the United Nations Security Council that the United States intends to restore virtually all of the United Nations sanctions on Iran – it’s a snap back, not uncommon,” Trump told reporters during a White House press conference on Wednesday.

"When the United States entered into the Iran deal, it was clear the United States would always have the right to restore the UN sanctions that would prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon," he claimed.

“My administration will not allow this Iran nuclear situation to go on,” Trump added, claiming that if he is re-elected, Tehran will immediately crawl back begging for a deal with Washington.
