SMM: local time on Sept. 19, US Secretary of State Pompeo announced that the United States will resume all United Nations sanctions against Iran. Analysts believe that the United States unilaterally launched a "rapid resumption of sanctions" against Iran, which is intended to extend the arms embargo, and the comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue is facing serious challenges. Pompeo said that on August 20, the United States informed the President of the Security Council of Iran's serious non-compliance with the Iranian nuclear agreement, which triggered the 30-day process of the "rapid resumption of sanctions" mechanism. The "rapid resumption of sanctions" came into effect at 8 p.m. Eastern time on September 19.

Late at night local time, the Saudi state news agency quoted Colonel Mohamed Gamidi, spokesman of the civil defense department of Gizan province in southern Saudi Arabia, as saying that shells fired by Yemeni Houthi forces from Yemen fell into a residential area in Gizan province that night, injuring five civilians and damaging three civilian vehicles.

According to foreign media reports, on the afternoon of September 19, local time in the United States, under the efforts of the Wechat Federation and other organizations, a California District Court Judge Laurel Biller issued a temporary injunction to urgently stop the restrictions on Wechat issued by the US Department of Commerce on September 18. The Commerce Department had no immediate comment.

Novel coronavirus was also detected in the outer packaging of imported seafood, this time a squid product, located in Jilin Province. On September 20, the Office of the leading Group for epidemic Prevention and Control in Fuyu City, Jilin Province, issued a notice on Wechat's official account "Health and Health Bureau of Fuyu City". It said that on the same day, it received a "notification of novel coronavirus nucleic acid positive status of an imported squid swab sample from outer packaging found in Changchun City", of which one item (10 kg) flowed into Fuyu.

The United States unilaterally resumes United Nations sanctions against Iran, which Britain, France and Germany explicitly oppose.

According to reports, on September 19, local time, US Secretary of State Pompeo announced that the United States would resume all UN sanctions against Iran. Analysts believe that the United States unilaterally launched a "rapid resumption of sanctions" against Iran, which is intended to extend the arms embargo, and the comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue is facing serious challenges.

Pompeo said that on August 20, the United States informed the President of the Security Council of Iran's serious non-compliance with the Iranian nuclear agreement, which triggered the 30-day process of the "rapid resumption of sanctions" mechanism. The "rapid resumption of sanctions" came into effect at 8 p.m. Eastern time on September 19.

In a statement, Pompeo accused Iran of violating the Iranian nuclear agreement and claimed that the UN Security Council "did nothing" to pave the way for Iran's purchase of various conventional weapons on October 18. The United States has taken action to prevent this from happening. The United States has launched a "rapid resumption of sanctions" against Iran to restore all previously terminated United Nations sanctions, including the arms embargo.

Pompeo also said that in the next few days, the United States will announce a series of additional measures to strengthen the implementation of sanctions and hold violators accountable. "our extreme pressure on the Iranian regime will continue until Iran reaches a comprehensive agreement with us." He said.

Iran reached a comprehensive agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue with the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany in July 2015. According to the agreement, Iran promised to limit its nuclear program and the international community lifted sanctions against Iran. The Security Council then adopted Resolution 2231 endorsing the Iran nuclear agreement. According to the resolution, the United Nations arms embargo on Iraq is scheduled to end on October 18, 2020.

Pompeo informed the Security Council in August that the United States would "launch" the resumption of UN sanctions against Iraq. This move by the United States has been "isolated" by the vast majority of Security Council members. Resolution 2231 provides for the "rapid resumption of sanctions" mechanism, but only participants in the Iran nuclear agreement can activate the mechanism. The United States withdrew from the Iran nuclear agreement in May 2018, thus losing its status as a participant in the agreement.

The foreign ministers of Britain, France and Germany issued a joint statement on August 20, saying that "the United States is no longer a participant in the agreement" and expressed clear opposition to the US move. Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Riabkov also said that it is "absurd" for the United States to launch a "rapid resumption of sanctions" at the Security Council and lacks international law and political basis.

Analysts commented that the "rapid resumption of sanctions" launched by the United States is intended to extend the arms embargo against Iraq. After withdrawing from the agreement, the United States has lost its status as a participant in the agreement, and its logic of forcing the Security Council to initiate a "rapid resumption of sanctions" mechanism is grotesque. Whether it is an attempt to extend the arms embargo against Iraq or to activate the "rapid resumption of sanctions" mechanism, the United States is in vain to exercise long-arm jurisdiction and hegemonism in spite of international law and international norms.

Five civilians were injured when Houthi forces shelled southern Saudi Arabia.

According to reports, in the late night of the 19th local time, the Saudi state news agency quoted Colonel Mohamed Gamidi, spokesman of the civil defense department of Gizan province in southern Saudi Arabia, as saying that shells fired by Yemeni Houthi forces from Yemen fell into a residential area in Gizan province that night, injuring five civilians and damaging three civilian vehicles.

Mohamed said that the civil defense department rushed to the scene of the incident immediately after receiving the news, and the injured have been taken to hospital and are currently in stable health.

Since the beginning of September, the Houthi forces in Yemen have repeatedly used drones and missiles to launch attacks on targets in Saudi Arabia, but they have all been shot down or intercepted by Saudi air defense forces. According to Saudi local media statistics, the shelling is the first time civilians in Saudi Arabia have been injured in a Houthi attack in Yemen in 2020.

Us judge stops Wechat's injunction

According to foreign media reports, on the afternoon of September 19, local time in the United States, under the efforts of the Wechat Federation and other organizations, a California District Court Judge Laurel Biller issued a temporary injunction to urgently stop the restrictions on Wechat issued by the US Department of Commerce on Friday.

Mr Biller said in an order that the WeChat users who filed the lawsuit "seriously questioned the value of the first Amendment [of the US Constitution] and that the difficult balance was in the plaintiff's favor".

Mr Biller's preliminary ban also blocked a previous order from the US Commerce Department banning WeChat from providing services such as transferring funds or processing payments in the US. The Commerce Department had no immediate comment.

The U.S. Department of Commerce has decided to ban downloading and updating of WeChat (Wechat) and TikTok from app stores in the United States, as well as prohibiting Wechat from providing any services for transferring funds or processing payments in the United States, the U.S. Department of Commerce said in a statement on Sept. 18, local time.

Novel coronavirus was found in imported seafood packaging again.

Novel coronavirus was also detected in the outer packaging of imported seafood, this time a squid product, located in Jilin Province.

On September 20, the Office of the epidemic Prevention and Control leading Group of Fuyu City, Jilin Province, issued a notice on Wechat's official account "Health and Health Bureau of Fuyu City". It said that on the same day, it received a "notification on the positive status of novel coronavirus nucleic acid in an imported squid swab sample from outer packaging found in Changchun City," which said that on the same day, Jilin Power Generation (Ji Weiming Dian < 2020 > No.432), one of the goods (10 kilograms) flowed into Fuyu. In order to implement the regular prevention and control strategy of "external defense input, internal defense rebound", the general public is informed as follows:

First, all people who have bought imported squid whiskers and eaten such products from the Umbrella Deda Seafood Wholesale Wholesale in Fuyu City from August 24, 2020 to August 31, 2020 must register a report to the village where they live and take the initiative to test novel coronavirus nucleic acid at the Center for Disease Control and Prevention in Fuyu City. If there are symptoms such as fever, cough, fatigue, diarrhea and so on, immediately go to the fever clinic of Fuyu people's Hospital for diagnosis and treatment.

Second, the general public should further enhance their awareness of prevention, wear masks, wash their hands frequently, and do not gather or eat frozen seafood. Do a good job of personal protection and protect the health of yourself and your family. Once the emergence of fever, cough and other acute respiratory symptoms, it is necessary to go to the fever clinic of designated medical institutions in time.

Prior to this, Dalian, Xiamen Customs and Jiangxi, Yunnan, Chongqing, Anhui and other places all tested positive for novel coronavirus nucleic acid in the outer packaging samples of frozen South American white shrimp imported from Ecuador.

At that time, experts concluded that the detection results did not mean that they were contagious, but reflected that the food safety management system of relevant enterprises was not in place.
