Pompeo calls drone map released by Iran ‘child-like’

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo denounces the “child-like” map released by Iran, purporting to show that a US drone entered its airspace in May.

“You’ve seen that child-like map that Foreign Minister (Mohammad Javad) Zarif put out that contrasts with the excellence and professionalism of America’s military and intelligence services,” Pompeo tells reporters as he leaves on a trip to US allies Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

Pompeo says the map “should leave no doubt in anyone’s mind about where that unarmed vehicle was — it was flying in international airspace.”
