Discussing his conversations about Iran with Prime Minister Netanyahu, Secretary Pompeo noted "the sanctions that we've put in place for designating those connected to Iranian malign activity, wherever we find them, including in places like Iraq... recently we designated an organisation inside of Iraq, which we had not done before. Our cooperation with Israel, our attempts to deny the Iranians the resources to continue to foment terror. We're going to continue to increase the pressure we're applying along each of those vectors of pressure". "Remember the simple goal", Pompeo added. "The simple goal is to get Iran to behave like a normal nation: stop blowing things up around the world; stop fomenting terrorism; stop their assassination campaign in Europe; stop underwriting the Huthis, Hamas, Hizbollah".
