US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday said authorities in Washington were prepared to talk to Iran “anytime,” but that it needed to “fundamentally” change its behavior and that a campaign of maximum pressure against it would continue.

“We are not rushed, the pressure campaign continues. It’s not just an economic pressure campaign … it’s isolation through diplomacy as well,” Pompeo told reporters in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa.
