Pompeo: changes demanded by US not difficult to implement for Iran
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the changes Washington has demanded that Iran make are not difficult to implement.
Speaking at the State Department, Pompeo said that he is confident a common diplomatic approach can be developed with European countries.
"I’m confident that there is a set of overlapping values and interests here that will drive us to the same conclusion about the need to respond to the Islamic Republic of Iran’s threats to the world," Reuters cited the spokesman as saying.
Yesterday, Pompeo laid out 12 demands for Iran and said relief from economic sanctions would only come when Washington had seen tangible shifts in Iran’s policies.
On May 8, US President Donald Trump announced the decision to withdraw from the JCPOA, which requires Tehran maintain a peaceful nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief and was signed in 2015.
