The U.N. Security Council is preparing to vote this week on a U.S. proposal to extend an arms embargo on Iran, a move that some diplomats say is bound to fail and put the fate of a nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers further at risk.

But with parent company ByteDance's tech spread across multiple products, splitting up the app's operations could be difficult.  In his ...
