US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday urged the UN Security Council to extend an arms embargo on Iran and said the US and partner forces last month seized a vessel carrying arms to Houthi rebels in Yemen.

"The Security Council must extend the arms embargo on Iran to prevent further conflict in the region," Pompeo told a State Department news conference.

"No serious person can possibly believe Iran will use any weapon it receives for peaceful ends."
