The US will introduce a Security Council resolution next week to extend the UN arms embargo on Iran, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Wednesday.

The top diplomat told reporters at the State Department that the measure is “eminently reasonable,” vowing “one way or another we will do the right thing.”

“We will ensure the arms embargo is extended,” he said amid opposition from China and Russia, two of the other veto-wielding permanent members.
