(Worthy News) - Washington will focus on pressuring Iran financially and contesting its activities in Syria, Iraq and Yemen, where the Islamic republic enjoys broad influence, the U.S. envoy to Syria said Wednesday, adding that Tehran should eventually withdraw all Iran-commanded forces from Syria.

Ambassador James Jeffrey told a group of journalists via a telephone conference that Iran's 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, which U.S. President Donald Trump pulled America out of in May, had a bad effect on Iran's behavior and that it has "accelerated its activities."

Iran enjoys influence in several countries in the region where it backs well-armed terrorist groups deployed in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Yemen. Speaking about Iran's future in Syria, Jeffrey said: "Iranians are part of the problem not part of the solution." [ Source: Israel Hayom (Read More...) ]
