US fails to get international support for Iran policy

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is on a mission to rally support for Washington's Iran policy. So far his mission hasn't gone quite the way he'd like. Though Pompeo has been on the road for the past week, neither the EU nor Russia is backing the US strategy towards Iran.

Meanwhile, Pompeo has been reassuring Russia and the EU that Washington is not heading towards conflict with Iran. Pompeo's comments came during his first official visit to Russia, a key backer of Tehran. Iran has blamed the current crisis in the Gulf region on Washington's decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal.

Pompeo: 'I was the CIA director. We lied, we cheated, we stole'

Europe has common interests with Russia, China over Iran - Merkel

"Germany, France and Britain are taking a different approach from the US on the question of the Iran agreement," she said cited by the daily. "For all our other differences, we even have common interests here with Russia and China."
