U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Cairo:
America remained silent during the 2009. The mullahs viciously cracked down the Iranian people and America then remained silent.
The real new beginning begins.
America is alongside our regional partners to confront Islamic fundamentalism.
U.S. President Donald Trump did not remain silent when Syria's Bashar Assad used chemical weapons.
#Iran's regime dreams of domination in the Middl East.
Countries across the Middle East are working with the U.S. in confronting Iran's malign activities & efforts to bypass sanctions.
The work against #Iran's regime is now a global effort. Countries are cutting imports oil imports to 0.
The Trump administration is establishing the Middle East Strategic Alliance to confront the region's main threats.
New ties are emerging between Israel & Oman, Saudi Arabia & Iraq.
(My take: This is against #Iran's interests.)
We strongly support Israels' efforts to stop #Iran from turning Syria into a new Lebanon. We will not ease our campaign to stop Iran's malevolent actions in this region.
If Iran continues on its course, the Middle East will suffer. US sanctions will continue until #Iran starts becoming acting as a normal country.
The U.S. will continue its efforts in Syria until all Iran-backed forces exit Syria.
Iran doesn't own Lebanon. Hezbollah has advanced missiles courtesy of Iran.
People of Iraq refuse to be forced into any lifestyle imposed by #Iran & its proxy forces.
"It was a very strong speech. It was about a new doctrine in the Middle East: the Trump doctrine."
"We've never dreamed of domination in the Middle East. Can you say the same about Iran?"
"... we seek for all nations to continue the work to constrain the full array of [#Iran's] malign activity."
