The U.S. Secretary of State is a man named Mike Pompeo.
Reuters is reporting that Pompeo made a statement that has caught the eye of many officials.
Pompeo said on Monday that it was unfortunate an Iranian oil tanker had been allowed to leave.
The Iranian oil tanker in question was detained off Gibraltar, near Spain and Morrocco.
He added that if Iran is successful in making profit from the tanker’s oil cargo, it would be bad.
