WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday said the Trump administration’s aim is not to extend the U.N. arms embargo on Iran for a short period of time, adding that it would do what it can to ensure the embargo, due to expire in October, stays in place.

“The United States has the unambiguous right, without the consent of any other nation, to ensure that this arms embargo stays in place,” Pompeo told reporters.
