Pompeo calls drone map released by Iran ‘child-like’

Published: Updated:

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Sunday denounced as “child-like” a map released by Iran that purported to show that a US drone entered its airspace in May.

“You've seen that child-like map that Foreign Minister (Mohammad Javad) Zarif put out that contrasts with the excellence and professionalism of America’s military and intelligence services,” Pompeo told reporters as he left on a trip to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Pompeo said the map “should leave no doubt in anyone’s mind about where that unarmed vehicle was -- it was flying in international airspace.”
