U.S. President Donald Trump said on Saturday he would move next week to trigger a "snapback" of sanctions on Iran at the United Nations.

"We'll be doing a snapback," Trump told reporters one day after the UN Security Council rejected a U.S. bid to extend a UN arms embargo on Iran. "You'll be watching it next week."

The United States has threatened to trigger a return of all UN sanctions on Iran using a provision in a 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, known as snapback, even though Trump abandoned the accord in 2018. Diplomats have said the United States would face a tough, messy battle in any such move.
