US war hawk Mike Pompeo repeats anti-Iran claims on Middle East tour

American war hawk Mike Pompeo is repeating false allegations against Iran during his first tour to the Middle East as the secretary of state.

According to Press TV, the former CIA chief met with Zionist regime’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir on Sunday, less than a week after being sworn in as the secretary of state.

He also took the chance to slam the Iran nuclear deal, an international agreement back by US allies, including Britain, France and Germany.

He threatened that US President Donald Trump would withdraw from the JCPOA “if we can’t fix it.”

Netanyahu also repeated the false accusation that Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons.

“Iran must be stopped,” said the Israeli premier. “Its quest for nuclear bombs must be stopped. Its aggression must be stopped.”

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has said Tehran will “mostly likely” abandon the agreement should the United States choose to withdraw from it.

Just like Trump, Pompeo has included Saudi Arabia and Zionist regime as his first destinations as a May 12 deadline looms for the US to announce its stance on the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and the 5+1 group.

Trump has so far failed to make good on his 2016 campaign promise to pull out of the historic deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
