Speaking about the 2015 deal with Iran, Pompeo said that, according to U.S. President Donald Trump, it "directly" allows Iran to possess nuclear weapons.
"I think exactly the same. This can not be accepted, so we came out of the deal," Pompeo stressed.
In addition, the U.S. "cannot turn a blind eye" to the fact that other threats emanate from Iran, "directly in Germany, in the center of Europe", he stressed. "The Iranian missile program is developing, Iran places members of the Hezbollah movement everywhere in the world, carries out attacks in Europe," the US Secretary of state listed. According to him, "the nuclear deal has not changed anything." ■
