The failure to extend a UN arms embargo on Iran was a serious mistake, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Saturday. "It's a serious mistake, we regret that," he told news conference during a visit to Poland.

The United States failed on Friday in its bid to extend a UN arms embargo on Iran after the move was opposed by Russia and China, while France, Britain, Germany and eight other members abstained.
