Iran nuclear deal: UN rejects US bid to 'snapback' Iran sanctions

The UN Security Council has blocked a controversial bid by the US to trigger the "snapback" of all sanctions on Iran lifted under a 2015 nuclear deal.

Indonesia's permanent representative, who holds the rotating presidency, said many of the 15 member states contested the move because the US withdrew from the accord two years ago.

The US envoy accused them of "standing in the company of terrorists".
The Trump administration attempted to initiate the snapback process last week, after the security council rejected a draft US resolution that would have extended indefinitely an arms embargo on Iran due to expire in mid-October.
