Mike Pompeo’s visit to India: US Secretary of State terms Iran biggest terror sponsor, says threat needs to be deterred


With India holding to its views on Iran from a geographical perspective, United States Secretary of State Michael Pompeo on Wednesday said that Tehran is the largest state sponsor of terror and there is a shared understanding of threat which needs to be deterred.

His remarks came at a joint press conference with External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, who had earlier said that India has a certain perspective on Iran which also comes from India’s geographic location.

“We all know that Iran is the world’s largest state sponsor of terror and we know that Indian people have suffered from terror around the world. I think there is a shared understanding of the threat and a common purpose to ensure that we can keep the energy at the right prices,” he said.

Pompeo made the remarks in response to a question after Jaishankar said that the global energy supplies should remain predictable and affordable and the visiting US leader was very receptive. Read More
