Secretary Pompeo hints at rethinking sanctions on Iran

Mainichi wrote that Secretary of State Pompeo hinted at the possibility of the United States rethinking its economic sanctions on Iran in light of the rapid spread of the new coronavirus around the world. The paper wrote that in response to a question from a reporter on whether the United States would consider a UN request for sanctions relief during a press conference held at the State Department on Tuesday, the Secretary reportedly said the United States evaluates all of its policies constantly. The paper noted, however, that the Secretary also said some countries continue to build missiles and nuclear capability while their people are starving, apparently with Iran and North Korea in mind.
