WASHINGTON

UN Security Council President Triansyah Djani said Tuesday he is not in a position to advance the US push to snapback international sanctions on Iran.

He cited a lack of consensus within the body on the US’ standing to do so.

“It is clear for me that there is one member that has a particular position on the issues, while there are significant numbers of members who have contesting views,” Djani said after being pressed to comment on the matter by the Russian and Chinese ambassadors during a virtual council meeting.

“In my view there is no consensus in the council, thus the president is not in the position to take further action,” he added.
