Pompeo to Unveil U.S. “Plan B” to Confront Iran
SECRETARY OF STATE MIKE POMPEO TO UNVEIL "PLAN B" FOR COUNTERING IRAN
(CNN) – Secretary of State Mike Pompeo plans to unveil the Trump administration’s new Iran strategy in an address Monday morning.
Administration officials say their “plan B” is to create a global alliance to pressure Iran into negotiations on a “new security architecture” that goes beyond its nuclear program.
The announcement comes more than a week after president Donald Trump announced the U.S. is withdrawing from the international Iran deal.
The agreement gives Iran sanction relief in exchange for limits on its nuclear activities.
Pompeo’s address on Iran is scheduled for 9:00 AM Monday.
It will be his first major foreign policy speech as Secretary of State.
