US wants to work with Europeans on new Iran deal: Pompeo

Washington (AFP) – The US wants to work with its European partners on a new agreement to counter Iran’s “malign behavior” after its withdrawal from a landmark nuclear deal, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Sunday.

“I’m hopeful in the days and weeks ahead we can come up with a deal that really works, that really protects the world from Iranian bad behavior, not just their nuclear program, but their missiles and their malign behavior as well,” he told Fox News.

“And I will work closely with the Europeans to try and achieve that.”
