Israel's Netanyahu To Press Pompeo For More Pressure On Iran
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is heading to Portugal to meet with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and call for increased pressure on Iran, Radio Liberty reports.
"We're seeing the Iranian empire totter," Netanyahu said on December 4 before departing for Lisbon, citing anti-government demonstrations in Iran, Lebanon, and Iraq.
U.S. President Donald Trump has imposed "tremendous" sanctions on Iran, he said. "It's important to increase this pressure against Iranian aggression."
Netanyahu and Pompeo, who will be on his way home from a NATO summit in London, are to meet in the Portuguese capital late in the day, according to the U.S. State Department.
