Pompeo has threatened Lebanon with sanctions in case of purchase of Iranian oil

US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo has threatened Lebanon with sanctions if it buys Iranian oil.

“Such a step would be unacceptable. It will fall under sanctions, “Pompeo said at a press conference, commenting on statements by the leader of the Lebanese movement “Hezbollah” Hassan Nasrallah about the need to purchase oil in Iran.

“We will do everything we can to ensure that Iran cannot sell crude oil to anyone, including Hezbollah,” Pompeo said.
