In Persian, Pompeo affirms support for Iranian people

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke Monday to the Iranian people in Persian on his official account on Twitter, affirming US support for the Iranian people.

In his post, Pompeo affirmed US support for the Iranian people following decades of corruption witnessed under the mullah regime.

"The United States stands in solidarity with the Iranian people. They have suffered the most after nearly 40 years of economic mismanagement and corruption," Pompeo said.

"Despite what Iran's regime says, our sanctions do not apply to the sale of food, agriculture, medicine or medical devices," he affirmed.

A second batch of US sanctions on Iran came into effect on Monday.
