Thursday, 20 August 2020_US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is desperately trying to make the case for the use of snapback against Iran from an internationally backed deal that his boss, President Donald Trump, quit in 2018.

'Fully valid': US top diplomat desperately makes case for snapback against Iran"This will be a fully valid, enforceable UN Security Council resolution," said Pompeo at a joint presser Wednesday, not long after the US failure in the Council to extend an arms embargo against Tehran, set to be lifted under the Iran nuclear deal in October.

The former CIA chief did not provide the precise legal justification for how the US plans to trigger snapback sanctions with US having withdrawn from the agreement.

"It has a set of provisions, it has a set of rights and obligations, and we will be in full compliance with that," Pompeo said. "We have every expectation that every country in the world will live up to its obligations, including every member of the P5, and every member of the UN that will take seriously the international commitments to which they have signed up for."
