Discussing U.S. sanctions designations against Iran, Secretary Pompeo emphasised that "we want to try and do so in ways that don't harm ordinary Iranians, but penalise the bad actors, the leaders of the country that have taken your nation down a path which has had 40 years of failure... we'll continue to look, find out who the wrongdoers are, find out which organisations are corrupting your country, and making your life worse. And when we find a way to do that, the U.S. stands ready to partner with the Iranian people on sanctions and on all things related to human rights inside of your country".
