China purchasing oil from Iran 'illegal' - Pompeo

United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo asserted on Friday that China and the companies from that country shouldn't buy Iranian oil as it "violates the US law," adding that Washington intends to "enforce sanctions against every violator of its restrictions." He also stressed that he's "confident" that the US "will execute on the commitment" its president Donald Trump made when claimed he won't allow Iran to have a nuclear weapon.

"China’s rise, its desire to impose its will around the world, continues to be something that America has to be very focused on. JCPOA let them proceed along every element of development of a program that could lead to the capability to, have a nuclear weapon that was fully deliverable," Pompeo told The Hugh Hewitt Radio Show.
