The United States of America has said that it is committed to reuniting American families with their loved ones trapped in Iran.
Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said this on Friday while addressing pressmen in the capital.
He stressed that this was important as they were innocent individuals who had committed no crime and could be caught in the crossfire between both countries.
Pompeo said, “I want to reiterate President Trump’s concerns for Americans and dual national citizens detained inside of Iran. Iran knows that these individuals have committed no crime. They know the charges against them are fake. We will do all that we can to get each of them returned home safely to their families.”
This comes after fresh sanctions issued by President Donald Trump on Iran.
