UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and Secretary of state Michael Pompeo will discuss on Thursday the US intention to return sanctions on Iran. This was announced on Wednesday at a briefing by the official representative of the UN Secretary-General, Stephane Dujarric.
According to him, вЂњthe meeting will be held on Thursday afternoon at the personal residence of the Secretary-General.вЂќ
According to diplomatic sources, the talks will concern Washington's intention to launch the procedure for the return of UN sanctions against Iran.
The representative of the Secretary-General, answering a question about the right of the US to start such a procedure, despite the withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal, noted that the decision on the legality of the US request should be made by the UN member States, not the Secretary-General.
вЂњThis is a decision and a topic for comments by [UN] the Member States,вЂќ he said.
