Pompeo Lives in a Parallel Universe

Aug. 29, 2020 (EIRNS)—The clock may be ticking, but only in the parallel universe that Mike Pompeo inhabits. This was the Iranian response to a Twitter post by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Aug. 27 in which he declared: “Last week, the U.S. triggered the 30-day process to restore virtually all @UN sanctions on Iran after the Security Council failed to uphold its mission to maintain international peace and security. These sanctions will snap back at midnight GMT on September 20.”

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh tweeted back in response: “13 members, incl. President of UNSC have declared that America has NO legal standing in the first place to recourse to 2231, as it’s not a JCPOA participant. The clock is ticking just in Pompeo’s parallel alternate universe! This happens when an ex-spymaster leads US diplomacy.”
