WASHINGTON, EgyptToday, January 2, 2018 - US Vice President Mike Pence vowed in a tweet Monday that the United States would not repeat the mistake of the previous administration when Iranian protesters resisted the regime in Tehran.

"As long as Donald Trump is the president and I am vice president, the United States of America will not repeat the shameful mistake of our past when others stood by and ignored the heroic resistance of the Iranian people as they fought against their brutal regime," Pence tweeted.

"The bold and growing resistance of the Iranian people today gives hope and faith to all who struggle for freedom and against tyranny. We must not and we will not let them down," he added.
