A senior Western diplomat acknowledged that the worldwide community - and in particular, the Europeans - needed to do more to voice their concerns about Iran's behavior.
"Russia prevented accountability and endangered the entire region", Haley said in a scathing statement ending with a thinly veiled threat: "If Russia is going to use its veto to block action against Iran's risky and destabilizing conduct, then the United States and our partners will need to take actions against Iran that the Russians can not block", she said. The US representative also accused Bolivia, Russia, and Kazakhstan of protecting Iran from being held accountable for its alleged actions promoting chaos in the Middle East.
Kuwait's UN Ambassador Mansour Al-Otaiba, the current council president, told reporters Saturday that "We are still working on the text, but the intention is to adopt it Monday morning".
Haley did not specify what kind of action could be taken.
"Obviously this vote isn't going to make the decision on the nuclear deal".
"Today, Russia protected the terrorist-sponsoring regime in Iran", said Haley, who was traveling to Honduras. "That just validated a lot of what we already thought which is Iran gets a pass for its risky and illegal behavior".

After hours of negotiations in a bid to reach a compromise, Russian Federation made clear it had strong reservations about the findings of the United Nations report and would not support a draft resolution that mentioned them. "What we're trying, and have to do.is to actually make these points even clearer than in the past".
The #Yemen panel of expert also had very harsh words for Saudi Arabia, UAE & coalition for using siege & starvation as a weapon of war.
