Iran Monitoring US Policy After Pompeo's Rise

Iran's Foreign Ministry said it is monitoring how Washington's Iran policy will be affected by US President Donald Trump's recent decision to appoint a more hawkish top diplomat to the State Department and will take a position accordingly.
Under Trump's Tuesday decision, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was sacked to be replaced by CIA chief Mark Pompeo, who is known to advocate a harsh line on Tehran and its nuclear deal with the six major powers.
"We have frequently witnessed changes in the US administration," IRNA quoted Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Bahram Qasemi as saying.
"This is a domestic issue and what matters to us is their approach and policies on international issues and Iran. We will monitor those US policies and will take a stance on them," he told a press briefing on Wednesday.
Trump has railed against the 2015 Iran deal, calling it "disastrous", a view publically echoed by Pompeo.
