- Pompeo Urges EU to Get Tough on Iran
Ahead of Thursday’s scheduled talks with EU foreign policy coordinator Federica Mogherini, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo wrote on Twitter: “We ask our allies and partners to join our economic pressure campaign against Iran’s regime. We must cut off all funding the regime uses to fund terrorism & proxy wars. There’s no telling when Iran may try to foment terrorism, violence & instability in one of our countries next.” Pompeo appended a map showing the locations of 11 Iran-sponsored terrorist attacks in Europe since 1979.
He added, “Iran continues to send weapons across the Middle East, in blatant violation of UN Security Council resolutions. Iran’s regime wants to start trouble wherever it can. It’s our responsibility to stop it.” (Deutsche Welle-Germany)
