Pompeo: positions of U.S. and Europe on Iran largely coincident
U.S. State Secretary Mike Pompeo denied there were tensions with Europe over how to deal with Iran, noting that their positions are largely coincident.
"I meet with my European partners constantly," Pompeo said, speaking in an interview for Euronews during a visit to the Netherlands.
"There are always … disagreements, there’s spats, there’s trade disputes … but it’s always the case that our shared value sets … those always prevail and they will here again too," the U.S. State Secretary stressed.
"There’s a long history of the United States and Europe having places where we disagree, I’m sure that will continue but the overall relationship? I must say I think it is excellent," Pompeo added.
