MOSCOW (Sputnik) - US authorities are confident that Tehran will not restart its nuclear program after the remaining sanctions against Tehran come into force next week, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Sunday.

Speaking on “Fox News Sunday,” Pompeo said he was sure the sanctions will "have the intended effect" to change Tehran's "maligned" behavior.
