The US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Friday, that Iran is the biggest sponsor of terrorism in the world, stressing that Washington will respond immediately to any Iranian actions against its interests.

“We have told the Iranians that we will immediately respond to any attack from them or their agents on our interests,” Pompeo said.

It is noteworthy that Pompeo confirmed in late August that the Strait of Hormuz is subject to international navigation, and that Iran does not control it as it claims.

He also stressed that the strait is an international corridor, noting that the United States will continue to work with allies in the region to ensure free shipping and trade in international waters.

The official IRNA news agency reported on Friday that the air force was conducting exercises near the strategic Strait of Hormuz in the  Gulf. Read more
