Netanyahu thanks USA for new Iran policy outlined by Pompeo

Even though USA negotiators tried to get Iran to admit it tried to build one in the early 2000s, Tehran refused. "At this milestone, we have to ask: What has the Iranian Revolution given to the Iranian people?"

In announcing the new U.S. strategy towards Iran, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Monday warned Washington "will apply unprecedented financial pressure on the Iranian regime" unless it complied with a list of 12 conditions, which must be met before any new deal can be reached.

The United States' European allies oppose the president's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.

"We will track down Iranian operatives and their Hizbollah proxies operating around the world and crush them", he said.

The Iran deal has drawn some of the starkest lines yet between the United States and its allies.

"Anytime sanctions are put in place, countries have to give up economic activity", Pompeo said, adding that USA companies have sacrificed business opportunities.

Pompeo said if Iran were to abide by stricter terms, including ending its ballistic missile program and its interventions in regional conflicts from Yemen to Syria, the United States would lift its new sanctions. The Europeans are searching for ways to protect their own companies from sanctions that Trump reimposed, though some big multinational firms already were avoiding business in Iran due to the uncertainty over the deal's fate.

Iran has been moving ahead to build nuclear weapons. Instead he hinted, but did not say outright, that we'd start slapping sanctions on allies who stayed in the deal. The law would prevent European companies from complying with us sanctions. The length of the list is simply a scope of the malign behaviour of Iran.

The company said if its investigations confirm that apps misused data , users of those apps will be notified. The ongoing audit is considering two facets of apps that hooked into Facebook's data stream.

"The era of such statements has evolved and the Iranian people have heard these statements hundreds of times, and no longer pays attention", he added.

Pompeo's comments were welcomed by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who said the demands amounted to "the only policy that could ultimately guarantee the security of the Middle East".

"US diplomacy sham is merely a regression to old habits: imprisoned by delusions & failed policies-dictated by corrupt Special Interest-it repeats the same wrong choices and will thus reap the same ill rewards". Iran is spreading aggressively throughout the Middle East. "We call on all countries to follow America's lead here", Netanyahu said at a Foreign Ministry reception in honor of Paraguay's embassy move to Jerusalem. "We will also ensure Iran has no possible path to a nuclear weapon - ever".

"The Trump Administration has no desire to roll tanks in an effort to directly topple the Iranian regime", said the group's president, Jim Hanson.

Pompeo warned that if Iran fully resumed its nuclear program Washington would be ready to respond and said the administration would hold companies doing prohibited business in Iran to account. In return for lifting economic sanctions, Iran agreed to intrusive inspections of its nuclear power facilities.

In reality, there is no choice - European companies can not afford to forsake the United States market. They're also engaging with the agreement's remaining participants - Russia, China, Iran and the European Union - to salvage the deal without the U.S.

In a question and answer session after the speech, Pompeo said in his first days as secretary of state, he spent time "Trying to see if there was a way to fix the deal". "We find the other signatories stating their loyalty to the agreement in the face of the USA administration's decision very positive", Erdogan said.

Critics rounded on Pompeo's speech, saying his demands could have been made without pulling America from the nuclear deal.
