Pompeo Says He'd Go to Tehran, Welcomes Chance to Speak Directly to Iranians
Updated on

Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said he would be willing to travel to Tehran to address the Iranian people about U.S. foreign policy as the Trump administration applies maximum pressure on the Islamic Republic to renegotiate a nuclear accord.

“Sure, if that’s the call, happily go there,” Pompeo said in an interview Thursday on Bloomberg Television. “I’d like a chance to go, not do propaganda but speak the truth to the Iranian people about what it is their leadership has done and how it has harmed Iran.”
