BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 P.M.) – The U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, said that Iran should be held accountable for the launch of an IRGC satellite to space.

“I think every nation has an obligation to go to the United Nations and evaluate whether this missile launch was consistent with that Security Council resolution,” Pompeo said at a news conference.

“I don’t think it remotely is, and I think Iran needs to be held accountable for what they have done,” he continued.

The Iranian Revolutionary Guards announced earlier Wednesday that the first military satellite had been successfully launched into space.

The Revolutionary Guards said that the satellite, which was dubbed “Noor 1”, was launched using the Qassed carrier rocket in two stages, indicating that the device is in orbit at a distance of 425 km from the Earth’s surface.

The commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, Major General Hussein Salami, stated that launching the military satellite into space will develop Iran’s defense capabilities and enable it to expand the scope of its strategic intelligence.

First of all, Pompeo should look at himself in the mirror. Always pointing fingers at nations that they don’t like but ignore the horrible crimes they are committing around the world.

Exactly Claudia, crimes that they commit themselves and also those they make themselves accomplices of through helping third party vassals and proxies in their dirtiest deeds. (GCC petrocrats, Israel, and arming 70% of the world’s dictatorships). Maybe Pompeo can shed some light on Israel’s regular testing of its nuclear-tipped ICBMs named the Jericho-3 ? or trigger IAEI inspection for its undeclared, no less illegal military nuclear production site called Dimona ? Or maybe he can as you say tell us more about himself : the US tearing apart one non-proliferation treaty after the other ever since Donald walked into office,… Read more »

With the crimes the Iranian regime does on Iranian population, USA would do a favour to Iranians if they bust this mafia.

you’re an idiot, the Iranian regime is a organization that will fail. They fail with helping there own people. And fail with spending all there money on the military and yet still wouldn’t be able to keep up with America. It’s not about war or politics. It comes down to the people of the nation. Too bad in your country, your opinions don’t matter to anyone but your bare hand cleaning your a*****e. So please shut the f**k up and die from corona you b*m a*s human.
