'Full range of options' on the table against Iran - Pompeo

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says while the U.S. does not want a war with Iran, President Donald Trump is considering 'a full range of options' to stop it from getting a nuclear weapon.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) US SECRETARY OF STATE MIKE POMPEO, SAYING: "Of course... the President will consider everything we need to do." "These are attacks on fundamental international norms and now on American interests.

And we always have the right to defend our country." Pompeo appeared on news shows Sunday to discuss potential retaliation after attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman last week that he blames on Iran.

Pompeo saying that this U.S. military video shows Iran's Revolutionary Guard removing an unexploded mine from the side of the Japanese-owned oil tanker.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) US SECRETARY OF STATE MIKE POMPEO, SAYING: "That's what that video is." But the Japanese company that owns the tanker disputes this explanation, saying it was hit by flying objects that exploded on impact.

Tehran has denied any involvement in the attacks.

Iran on Monday will announce further moves to scale back its compliance with an international nuclear pact abandoned by the U.S. last year.

Iranian news agency Tasnim reported that the country will look to increase stocks of enriched uranium and production of heavy water at one of its nuclear plants.
