US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Saturday that should China arm and finance Iran, it would destabilize the Middle East.
.@SecPompeo: China’s entry into Iran will destabilize the Middle East. Iran remains the world’s largest state sponsor of terror, and to have access to weapons systems and commerce and money flowing from the Chinese Communist Party only compounds that risk for that region. pic.twitter.com/sWlF0rv5mP— Department of State (@StateDept) August 9, 2020
Watch: If the arms embargo on #Iran is not extended, the Middle East, the American military placed in that region and the entire world will be in danger, #US Ambassador to the #UN Kelly Craft tells Al Arabiya.https://t.co/F2EVXfNTcq pic.twitter.com/MqG1amO8iE— Al Arabiya English (@AlArabiya_Eng) July 9, 2020
.@SecPompeo: The tide is turning. All across the world the threat from the Chinese Communist Party is becoming clearer and clearer, and nations that are likeminded are beginning to come together to rebalance, to push back against this, to protect our freedom and democracy. pic.twitter.com/NWPucPLmlH— Department of State (@StateDept) August 8, 2020
