UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — US financial pressure on Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah is a success, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Friday during a visit to Beirut.

Pompio called on Lebanon to confront the Shiite group he accused of “criminality and terrorism”.

“The pressure we are exerting on Iran is clear,” Pompeo said in a statement after meeting with Lebanese political leaders. It is aimed at cutting off funding for terrorists and it is a success … We believe that our work is already restricting Hezbollah’s activities.”
