Israel to discuss ‘Iran’s aggression’ with Pompeo

Jerusalem: Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that he will discuss “Iran’s aggression” with US State Secretary Mike Pompeo in Jerusalem.

Netanyahu referred to Pompeo as a “true friend of Israel”, Xinhua news agency reported. He said he will discuss with Pompeo the regional developments including “Iran’s growing aggression and the nuclear deal with Iran”.

Netanyahu has been one of the most vocal opponents of the nuclear deal.

US President Donald Trump is due to announce on May 12 whether he decides to extend the waiver on nuclear-related sanctions against Iran. Re-imposing the sanctions might jeopardize the landmark accord signed in 2015 between Iran and six world powers.
