US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned in a Twitter post on Monday that the duration of UN sanctions on Iran is about to end.

“The clock is ticking. Time remaining before the UN arms embargo on Iran expires and Qasem Soleimani’s travel ban ends,” Pompeo tweeted, sharing a clock that counts down the time until the UN sanctions expire.

The clock showed that a little over a year and three months remain.

Pompeo also urged “our allies and partners to increase the pressure on the Iranian regime until it stops its destabilizing behavior.”


On Sunday, Pompeo sharply criticized Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei for tweeting a threatening message to Israel.

“Khamenei doesn’t see ‘progress’ as prosperity for the Palestinian people, but Palestinian terrorists are switching from rocks to rockets to kill more Jews,” Pompeo claimed.
