The US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, announced that the United States intends to tighten its sanctions against Tehran against the backdrop of what he described as the policy of “political repression” that the Iranian regime practices against its opponents.
According to a statement published by the US State Department, today, Sunday, that Tehran tried, after the demonstrations in Iranian cities a year ago, to “hide evidence of its cruel repressive actions by censorship and intimidation methods,” and cut off Internet services.
Pompeo added that the Iranian authorities still refuse to conduct independent investigations into the killings committed during that period, adding, “But we will not forget the victims of the regime. The United States will continue to contribute to holding those responsible, accountable, and next week, it will announce its subsequent measures against those involved in the repression.” In order to achieve justice for the Iranian people, who suffered the most from the persecution of the Islamic Republic of Iran. ”
In the conclusion of his statement, the US Secretary of State expressed his hope that “all countries will join our appeal to the Iranian regime to immediately release all political detainees and prisoners of conscience.”
