Pompeo: US Sanctions Against Iran Are Working


US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo

By Pooya Stone

United States sanctions targeting the Iranian government are working, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Monday.

Some people said “American sanctions wouldn’t work if the Europeans didn’t come along. And that’s turned out to be false. They have worked”, Pompeo said in a radio interview with Sean Hannity of The Sean Hannity Show.

“We do hope that the Islamic Republic of Iran leadership will come to know what I think their people know. I think their people think their leadership is on the wrong end of the stick. I think the Iranian people understand that underwriting Hizballah in Lebanon and in Syria and in providing money in Yemen”, Pompeo added.

Pompeo said that a “fundamental flaw” of the Obama Administration’s 2015 nuclear deal with Iran and other world powers was that it “allowed Iran to have enormous wealth, lots of money, put cash on pallets and sent it to Iran, and then let them continue to enrich uranium so they had the capacity to build out their nuclear weapon system and foment terror. Those were the failures of the previous agreement the President identified, and I think we’ve made real progress”.
