BRUSSELS (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday called on American allies to help impose economic pressure on Iran, and accused Tehran of continuing to sell weapons in the Middle East despite United Nations resolutions.

"We must cut off all funding the regime uses to fund terrorism & proxy wars," Pompeo said in a Twitter post ahead of his scheduled meeting with European Union's foreign affairs and security policy representative Federica Mogherini in Brussels.
