US Iran envoy Brian Hook stepping down from his post: Pompeo

Brian Hook, the US State Department’s hawkish special envoy for Iran, is quitting his job amid Washington’s polarizing campaign to extend the conventional arms embargo on Tehran.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed in a statement Thursday that Hook, one of the few national security officials to survive the disarray in the US foreign policy team through most of President Donald Trump’s term, was stepping down from his post.
