Rex Tillerson ethos: Iranian militias in Iraq 'need to go home'

Iranian militias
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called for all Iranian militias to leave Iraq and "encouraged" Europe to join sanctions against Iran's Revolutionary Guard.

Speaking in the Saudi Arabian capital of Riyadh on Sunday, Tillerson urged the Iran-backed militias to leave Iraq as the battle against the Islamic State nears an end.

"Iranian militias that are in Iraq, now that the fight against Daesh and ISIS is coming to a close, those militias need to go home," he said, referring to the Arabic acronym for the Islamic State and the abbreviation for the group's former name. "Any foreign fighters in Iraq need to go home and allow the Iraqi people to regain control."
