(Worthy News) - Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will be "singularly focused" on rallying Middle East leaders to help the United States counter Iran's global support for terrorism and military intervention during a weeklong jaunt across the region, the Secretary of State told the Washington Free Beacon aboard his plane en route to his first stop in Jordan.
Pompeo said that while the issue of the Trump administration's decision to withdraw American forces from Syria will likely be an agenda issue, his high-level meetings with Arab leaders will mostly focus on building a coalition to counter the Iranian regime, which continues to launch terror strikes against Israel and other U.S. allies in the region.
"We took over from an administration that let Iran loose," Pompeo said in response to questions from the Free Beacon, referring to the Obama administration's efforts to appease Tehran in a bid to ink the landmark nuclear deal. "That is a big effort to push back against." [ Source: Washington Free Beacon (Read More...) ]
