Pompeo warns any arms sales to Iran will result in sanctions as embargo expires

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Sunday that the U.S. will levy sanctions for selling arms to Iran even as the United Nations embargo against sales to the nation expires.

"The United States is prepared to use its domestic authorities to sanction any individual or entity that materially contributes to the supply, sale, or transfer of conventional arms to or from Iran, as well as those who provide technical training, financial support and services, and other assistance related to these arms," Pompeo said in a statement.

"For the past 10 years, countries have refrained from selling weapons to Iran under various U.N. measures," Pompeo added. "Any country that now challenges this prohibition will be very clearly choosing to fuel conflict and tension over promoting peace and security."

The embargo expired Sunday, although heavy U.S. economic sanctions remain in place. The U.S. has pushed the U.N. Security Council to pass an extension of the embargo but the council voted down the proposal in August, according to The Associated Press.
