WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday lambasted his predecessor, John Kerry, for assembly Iranian officers in back-channel talks and accused him of making an attempt to undermine the Trump administration’s coverage towards Tehran.

“What Secretary Kerry has completed is unseemly and unprecedented,” Pompeo instructed a information convention, including that he “ought to not have interaction in that form of habits. It’s inconsistent with what the overseas coverage of the United States is, as directed by this president. It is past inappropriate.”
