WASHINGTON, May 13 (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo shared information on Iranian threats with NATO officials during a meeting in Brussels after canceling a stop in Moscow, a State Department official said on Monday.
“Iran is an escalating threat and this seemed like a timely visit on his way to Sochi,” said Brian Hook, the special representative for Iran. “The secretary wanted to share some detail behind what we have been saying publicly. We believe that Iran should try talks instead of threats. They have chosen poorly by focusing on threats.” (Reporting by Makini Brice and David Brunnstrom; Editing by David Alexander)
