Iran, Gaza on Agenda as Pompeo Visits Egypt
Friday, 11 January 2019 04:50 WIB | GLOBAL |

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is meeting with Egyptian officials Thursday in Cairo as he seeks support from allies to apply further pressure on Iran.

Pompeo is scheduled to give an afternoon speech about the U.S. relationship with the Middle East in the Trump era, with what the State Department says is a focus on œcommitment to peace, prosperity, stability and security in the region.

First he will hold talks with President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi and a series of sessions with Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry, with additional topics including Gaza and economic cooperation.

Pompeo is on a weeklong trip to the Middle East where, in addition to urging governments to try to make Iran alter its behavior, he is also giving reassurances about U.S. counterterrorism efforts as the United States prepares to withdraw its troops from Syria.

Before traveling to Egypt, Pompeo made unannounced visits Wednesday to Irbil and Baghdad in Iraq.
