Trump Shaping New 'Liberal' Order to Block Russia, China, Iran: Pompeo

"While [the United States] itself violates [UN Security Council resolution] 2231 - and even threatens to punish those who don't wish to violate it in abiding with illegal US sanctions - it now falsely accuses Iran of violating the very SAME resolution", Mr. Zarif added.

The provision's true intent has often been contested because the diplomatic language - "Iran is called upon not to undertake" - was agreed to at the time of the nuclear deal.

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

Following the meeting, French Ambassador Francois Delattre said there was "widely-shared concern" at the council about the missile test and renewed France's call to Iran to halt all activities related to its missile program.

"The Iranian government claims that its missile testing is completely defensive in nature".

Canadian heavy crude strengthened the most since June. "Pipelines only solve one component of this", Traya said. He lauded the province's market intervention, calling it a necessary step.

The resolution says Iran is "called upon" to refrain for up to eight years from work on ballistic missiles created to deliver nuclear weapons.

It follows a statement from US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Saturday, in which he accused Iran of test-firing a missile capable of carrying nukes and in breach of the 2015 nuclear agreement agreed between Tehran and world powers.

US President Donald Trump is building a new world order upheld by American leadership and democracy, his secretary of state told diplomats at an event in Brussels on Tuesday, blaming Iran and China for instability in the world.

Karen Pierce, the British ambassador to the United Nations, said the December 1 missile test was "inconsistent" with the resolution, but stopped short of admitting that it was a direct breach.

Nikki Haley, the outgoing U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, insisted it had been conducted by Tehran "in defiance" of resolution 2231, describing the test as "dangerous and concerning, but not surprising". "The worldwide community can not keep turning a blind eye every time Iran blatantly ignores Security Council resolutions", she added.

According to the health department, the first come, first served flu shots are offered to anyone who is six months and older. A flu vaccine is not only important for protecting yourself but also for protecting your friends and family members.

Iran's test of a ballistic missile this month alarmed the West and France called it a destabilising act, but the European Union is focused on protecting the 2015 worldwide nuclear deal with Iran that US President Donald Trump pulled out of in May.

"It was a mistake to exclude missiles from the Iran nuclear deal and is one of the principle reasons the United States left it", Hook said, directly criticizing the previous administration for caving to Iran's demands that its advanced missile program not be covered under the deal.

Worse still, the U.S. now not only openly forces all nations to violate the terms of resolution 2231, but also threatens to punish them for its implementation. It's all coming from Iran.

"I want to thank you for everything that you're doing, for your strong statements on the latest violation by Iran on the ballistic missiles", said Netanyahu, ahead of a planned meeting with Pompeo in Brussels.

"Furthermore, this ballistic missile activity is destabilising and increases regional tensions", it added.
