U.S. Department of State News: Remarks to Press
WASHINGTON – Jan. 8, 2019 – The U.S. Department of State (DOS) released the following transcript with Secretary Pompeo:
SECRETARY POMPEO: We’ve got a good trip, a lengthy trip, to the Middle East. I’ve been to the Middle East probably as much as any Secretary of State in the beginning of their tour. I went there in my previous role quite a bit as well. They’re an important set of relationships, especially for this administration as we continue to build out the coalition that’s pushing back against the world’s largest state sponsor of terror, Iran.
