Pompeo sets out to build global coalition against Iran
WASHINGTON-The Associated Press
The U.S. secretary of state says he will be talking to officials in the Persian Gulf as well as Asia and Europe as he sets out to build an international coalition against Iran.
Pompeo's mission comes as the U.S. sends conflicting signals on Iran, ranging from bellicose to conciliatory and back again.
Amid the tough talk on Iran, Pompeo himself says the U.S. is prepared to negotiate with Iran, without preconditions, in a bid to ease tensions.
That said, new sanctions are to be announced Monday in a bid to force the Iranian leadership into talks.
