US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Friday the United States has reliable information the Iranian oil tanker Adrian Darya is headed to Syria.


"We have reliable information that the tanker is underway and headed to Tartus, Syria. I hope it changes course," Pompeo said on Twitter.
"It was a big mistake to trust Zarif," he said referring to Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, who had given assurances to Britain the tanker would not sail to Syria.
