Iran condemns Pompeo's visit to occupied lands

Iran condemns Pompeo's visit to occupied lands

Iran’s Foreign Ministry reacted to the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's trip to the occupied lands, saying he gives priority to the interests of the Zionist regime’s prime minister even more than those of the American taxpayers.

Spokesman of the Foreign Ministry Saeed Khatibzadeh wrote in a tweet late on Friday, "The #PompeoDoctrine 101: Put Bibi's interest above that of even Americans who put him in office;

- Formalize Israel's occupation & whitewash Israeli crimes- no matter what;

- Silence criticism with bogus 'anti-Semitism label';

- Waste US taxpayers money on private family tours."

Pompeo and his Bahraini counterpart arrived in the occupied lands on Wednesday to mark a new, US-brokered normalization deal with the Zionist regime.

He later visited an Israeli settlement in the occupied West Bank and Golan Heights.

His visit has reignited speculation that Pompeo is seeking Israeli support for his political future, Press TV reported.

Pompeo's visits "have nothing to do with America's ambitions but his own in 2024," Aaron David Miller, a senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, tweeted.
