US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Iran became the new stronghold of terrorist organization Al Qaeda
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said that Iran has become the new stronghold of the international terrorist organization Al Qaeda. Mike Pompeo said that al Qaeda has centralized its leadership inside Tehran. Not only this, the commander of Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri is currently hiding in Tehran. Iran has strongly denied this statement of the US Secretary of State.

Pompeo said relations between Iran and Al Qaeda began to improve in 2015, when the Obama administration was finalizing the nuclear deal with Germany, Britain and France. Sanctions were lifted from Iran after this nuclear deal. However, the US Secretary of State provided no evidence to support the statement about Iran.

Iran, a country of Shia Muslims, has long been considered an al Qaeda, an influence of the Sunnis, an enemy of the region. However, several reports state that al Qaeda is using Iran's territory. Pompeo said, 'Al Qaeda has a new home. It is the Islamic Republic of Iran. 'He said,' I would say that Iran is actually a new Afghanistan which has been the geographical center of al Qaeda but Iran is really very bad. '

The US Secretary of State said, "Al-Qaeda people in Afghanistan used to hide inside the mountains and from there the terrorists in Iran were carrying out their activities under the tight security of the Iranian administration." Mike Pompeo will step down as Donald Trump's foreign minister on January 20. On the other hand, Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javed Zarif has strongly denied Pompeo's statement. He said that the US Secretary of State is lying to incite the war.
