U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday that Washington would seek to work with the 15-member body to reimpose ballistic missile restrictions on Iran.

He also said a U.N. arms embargo on Tehran should not be lifted in 2020 and called on the Security Council to establish “inspection and interdiction measures, in ports and on the high seas, to thwart Iran‘s continuing efforts to circumvent arms restrictions.”
