Tehran (IP): Iran's Foreign Minister called the US decision to return to the UN Security Council as a result of the abject failure of the policy of maximum pressure against Iran.

Iran PressIran News: Mohammad Javad Zarif in his recent post on Twitter on Monday said that the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and his boss - the US President Donald Trump, had declared 'CEASING US participation' in JCPOA, "dreaming that their 'max pressure' would bring Iran to its knees."

He called the result of the maximum pressure policy as 'abject failure', added that the US Secretary of State now "wants to be the JCPOA participant."

Iran's Foreign Minister urged the US officials to "Stop Dreaming", stressing: "Iranian Nation always decides its destiny."

The New York Times on May 27 revealed a US ploy to pressure the United Nations Security Council to extend an arms embargo on Tehran, which is due to expire in October. 

According to the New York Times, Mike Pompeo has approved a plan, under which the United States would claim it legally remains a "participant state" in the nuclear deal that Donald Trump has unilaterally withdrew. 

The United Nations UN Security Council added arms embargo on Iran in 2006 and 2007, which is supposed to be lifted on 18 October 2020, five years after the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) Adoption Day.
