Rex Tillerson: Iran Regime to Halt Support for Terrorist Groups

United States Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has called upon the Iranian regime’s president to end all support and financing of terrorist groups.

Mr. Tillerson said the U.S. is working to bolster Gulf defenses in order to counter the Iranian regime’s influence in the region.

Tillerson’s comments came during a joint press conference with his Saudi counterpart Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir on the sidelines of the Riyadh Summit.

Tillerson said the regime’s President Hassan Rouhani has an opportunity to end Tehran’s role in supporting “destabilizing forces that exist in this region.”

He also urged Tehran to put an end to its ballistic missile testing. He expressed hope that Iran’s regime “restores the rights of Iranians to freedom of speech, to freedom of organization so Iranians can live the life they deserve.”

He said that “if Rouhani wanted to change Iran’s relationship with the rest of the world, those are the things he could do.”
