October 13, 2017


SECRETARY TILLERSON: Good afternoon, all. I want to welcome Secretary General Luis Almagro to the State Department. A pleasure to have you here, sir, and thank you for coming.

SECRETARY GENERAL ALMAGRO: Thank you.

QUESTION: Secretary Tillerson, are you confident that you can get the Europeans to renegotiate the Iran deal?

SECRETARY TILLERSON: Well, I think – to our friends and allies in Europe, I think we have a real opportunity to address all the threats that are posed by Iran. I think the plan the President’s laid out has been quite clear in terms of articulating those threats; that really, it’s in all of our interests to work together. And I fully expect that our allies and friends in Europe and in the region are going to be very supportive in efforts undertaken to deal with Iran’s threats. Thank you.
