US vows to get citizens ‘trapped’ in Iran

The United States government on Friday promised to ensure that Americans ‘trapped’ in Iran are repatriated and reunited with their families.

US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo stated this during a press briefing in Washington DC.

Pompeo said the US will do all it can to repatriate its nationals in Iran, noting that these citizens have committed no crime.

Pompeo said, “I want to reiterate President Trump’s concerns for Americans and dual national citizens detained inside of Iran. Iran knows that these individuals have committed no crime. They know the charges against them are fake. We will do all that we can to get each of them returned home safely to their families.”

The PUNCH had reported that President Donald Trump approved new sanctions on Iran on Friday, insisting that he wants Iran to behave like a normal nation.
