Pompeo: US will penalize those who defy Iran sanctions

United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned on Monday that Washington will penalize every country that chooses to defy the newly reimposed sanctions against Iran. The official stressed that all countries that disregard Iranian measures will face "severe, swift punishment."

Pompeo noted that many countries, including Greece, Taiwan, and Turkey have already reduced their consumption of Iranian oil while several nations have already halted it completely. The diplomat highlighted that the US will continue its negotiations to get all other nations to cut Tehran's crude to zero.

The secretary of state said that Washington wants to "starve Iran" of revenues that could support the country's future nuclear development and that it plans to be "relentless" in pressuring the nation.
