Thirteen of the 15 users of the panel have stated the U.S. can’t reinstate the sanctions since it withdrew from the 2015 multilateral nuclear accord that offered that authority.
“It is crystal clear for me that there is 1 member which has a certain posture on the challenges, when there are considerable figures of users who have contesting sights,” in accordance to Ambassador Dian Triansyah Djani of Indonesia, president of the council this month, who stated he would not consider more action on the U.S. thrust.
The U.S. has not stated what its subsequent move will be, even though some diplomats speculate that the U.S. could pressure Niger, which retains the rotating presidency in September, to consider action.
Ambassador Kelly Craft, the U.S. envoy to the U.N., acknowledged the U.S. isolation in her personal remarks Tuesday.
