US Senator Tom Cotton said the foreign policy of his country toward Iran should be to push for a regime change, according to a Sunday Politico report cited by the Hill.

“The policy of the United States should be regime change in Iran,” said Cotton, who reportedly briefs the White House on foreign policy on a regular basis.

Cotton expressed safety concerns with the Tehran government in its current state.

In order to pressure Iran, the Republican senator pointed to the use of diplomatic, economic and covert actions.

He told the newspaper that the US should “support internal domestic dissent” to get the desired outcome.

Stuart Jones, the acting assistant secretary of State for Near Eastern affairs, told the AP last month that the US is still forming a “comprehensive Iran policy”, but will continue to implement the Obama-era Iran nuclear deal in the meantime.
