Mike Pompeo said that the US European allies did not support the destruction of Iran’s Suleimani. According to the Voice of America, their European allies are not equal to those of the Middle East.
“It can be said that European countries did not help Americans as much as they wanted. The British, the French, and the Germans must understand that what Americans do has saved the lives of people in Europe. All Americans do is want to be good for the world and we call on everyone in the world to support the US efforts, ”said Mike Pompeo.
EU leaders reacted cautiously to the US assassination of Iranian General Suleymani. The leaders of Britain, Germany, France and other European countries have confirmed that the US action is a response to a series of provocative actions by Iran. At the same time, European leaders urged all sides to refrain from leading to tensions in the Middle East.
The US Secretary of State, meanwhile, said the reaction of Israel, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan and Egypt to Suleimani’s death was wonderful.
“I took the time to talk to partners in the area, inform them of what we did and why we did this, and ask them for help. They are all great, ”Pompeo said.
The New York Times quoted a Defense Department and U.S. administration source as saying that Pompeo himself was one of the passionate supporters of tough actions against Iran.
According to the source, US President Donald Trump initially refused to assassinate the Iranian general and instead ordered the US air force to attack the “Kataib Hezbollah” group in Iraq’s Al Qaim city near the border. with Syria on December 30.
However, in the end, US President Donald Trump chose to destroy Iran’s General Suleimani with the advice of the assistant of the head of national security Robert O’Brien, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Secretary of State Defense Mark Esper, CIA Director Gene Hespel and acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney.
Certainly the killing of General Suleimani will lead to unpredictable consequences for peace in the Middle East and Iran will respond to this action. However, on January 6, US President Donald Trump said that, after killing General Suleimani, the United States spent about $ 2 million to buy military equipment, ready to send them to Iran if the country resolves. intending to retaliate against the US about this incident.
