The Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council of Iran emphasized that the trigger mechanism is merely a propaganda show to save US President Donald Trump and has no other use.
Ali Shamkhani, secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, tweeted on Friday: "The United States knows that it is unable to reinstate UN sanctions and arms embargo against Iran."
Shamkhani reminded: "White House warmongers should think of another way to reduce the hatred of the American people for Trump."
Following the rejection of its proposed UN Security Council resolution extending indefinitely the arms embargo on Iran, the United States has put activating the trigger mechanism on its agenda.
Meanwhile, other Permanent Members of the Security Council have stated that the US does not have the legal right to activate the snapback or trigger mechanism, citing the official withdrawal of the United States from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
