"There are 23 pending sanctions through resolutions for The USA to either lift their veto or move to abstention."

Complete and utter bullsh*t Musket

A resolution is drafted and discussed by the Security Council of the United Nations. A final wording is agreed and a vote is taken. Any of the five permanent members can then veto the resolution and if that happens then that particular resolution is dead in the water - it cannot be "resurrected", there could be no lifting of veto or alteration of position - The phrase "That the council remains seized on or fixed on" relates to the possible drafting of new resolutions on the same subject.
