(Worthy News) – The Trump administration has created an “elite team” at the US State Department on Iran policy hoping to streamline execution of its newly aggressive strategy toward the Islamic Republic.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the team will be responsible with “directing, reviewing and coordinating all aspects of the State Department’s Iran-related activity,” reporting directly to him.
“Our hope is that one day soon we can make a new agreement with Iran, but we must see major changes,” Pompeo said. US President Donald Trump pulled out of an international nuclear deal with Iran in May and has directed his administration to apply “maximum economic pressure” on the country to change its behavior.
