Iran is 'aggressor' - Pompeo

United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said during a speech at the Heritage Foundation President's Club Meeting that "the truth is that Iran is the aggressor, not the aggrieved."

Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is a 2015 agreement between Iran on one side, and the P5+1 and the European Union on the other. Under the terms of the deal, Iran agreed to denuclearization in exchange for aid from the US and the EU. American president Donald Trump announced in 2018 that the US is withdrawing from the "horrible" deal.

In September, Pompeo stated that Iran might be concealing nuclear activity and that it must never possess nuclear armament.
