Pompeo warns US will exert relentless pressure on Iran

Washington, Nov 6 (IECurrentAffairs) U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has warned that the United States will exert “relentless” pressure on Iran unless it behaves “like a normal country.”

Pompeo made the comments on November 5, hours after Washington imposed sanctions targeting key sectors of Iran’s economy following President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the 2015 nuclear agreement between Iran and world powers.

“Our objective is to starve the regime of revenue used to fund its destabilizing activities. Our ultimate goal is to convince the regime to abandon its current revolutionary course,” Pompeo expressed

Iran had urged the United Nations to hold the United States accountable for the sanctions targeting its energy, shipping, shipbuilding, and financial sectors, branding the measures “illegal” and in violation of a Security Council resolution.
