Iran and Syria
When you look at a situation like Yemen, you’ve had Iranian support for the Houthis. If you look in Iraq, we want make sure that any Iranian influence in Iraq does not contribute to splitting the country apart. But rather, we are all pushing in support of the Abadi government and holding the country together.Ben Rhodes, U.S. Deputy National Security Advisor
