Iran's Zarif calls Pompeo's comments 'untrue', based on 'old illusions': state TV


Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif called U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s comments about Iran “untrue” and based on “old illusions” on Wednesday and said Washington had become a hostage to pressure groups, APA reported citing Reuters.

 

Two days earlier, Pompeo had said Washington would impose sanctions on Iran if it did not curb its regional and military influence and accused Tehran of supporting armed groups in countries such as Syria, Lebanon and Yemen.

 

Zarif said Pompeo had repeated old allegations against Tehran “only with a stronger and more indecent tone”.

 

“Pompeo and other U.S. officials are trapped in old illusions ... They are taken hostage by corrupt pressure groups,” Zarif said in a live interview on state television.
