Iran has strongly rejected US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's demand for sweeping changes in its foreign, military and nuclear policies, saying Washington is in no position to dictate the country's direction.

It also exposes its futile bid to deflect the world's attention from the illegal move and breach by the US in violating the JCPOA," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement carried by ISNA late Monday.
