Ended my travel on the Arabian Peninsula. I reinforced our commitment to #SaudiArabia’s  security and was honored to meet #Oman’s  new ruler, His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tariq al Said. We’ll continue to strengthen these relationships as we stand against Iran’s malign behavior.

Three regions, six countries, 10 days. Numerous constructive conversations and countless opportunities to strengthen valuable bilateral, multilateral, and people-to-people relationships. Heading home.

Maximum pressure on the Iranian regime will continue until its behavior changes. Today we imposed sanctions against China, Hong Kong, and UAE-based entities for operating in Iran’s oil and petrochemical sectors. If you facilitate this regime's activities, you will be sanctioned.

Today, justice was served for the brave Americans who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks in #Benghazi.  We continue to mourn the losses of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith, and Tyrone Woods. @StateDept  continues its important work around the world.

Per Senate impeachment Rule XXIII, “[u]pon pronouncing judgement, a certified copy of such judgement shall be deposited in the office of the Secretary of State.” Tonight, it was my pleasure to sign President@realDonaldTrump’s  full acquittal.

The Iranian regime uses satellite launches to further advance its ballistic missile capabilities that allow it to threaten its adversaries and threaten regional stability. The world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism should not be allowed to develop and test ballistic missiles.

The U.S. Navy interdicted 358 Iranian-made missiles + other weapons components on their way to the Houthis in Yemen. This is another example of the world’s largest state sponsor of terror the Islamic Republic of Iran continuing to defy the UN Security Council.

Susan and I wish all Americans a Happy #PresidentsDay.  Today, we celebrate all U.S. Presidents throughout history and our current POTUS, the 45th, @realDonaldTrump.

Today we sanctioned Russian-owned oil firm Rosneft Trading S.A., cutting off Maduro’s main lifeline to evade our sanctions on the Venezuelan oil sector. Those who prop up the corrupt regime and enable its repression of the Venezuelan people will be held accountable.

Why did @khamenei_ir  deny 7,000+ Iranians the right to run in tomorrow's election? Because he fears one free election more than anything else. Today, the U.S. sanctioned those responsible for denying Iranians the right to free and fair elections.

After decades of conflict, we have come to an understanding with the Taliban on a significant reduction in violence across #Afghanistan.  This is an important step on a long road to peace, and I call on all Afghans to seize this opportunity.
