London, 10 Jan - The US Defense Secretary James Mattis has stated that the White House does not have any issues with the Iranian people, only with the Regime.
He also stated that the people of Iran clearly also have issues with the Regime, citing the widespread protests that broke out in the final days of 2017 as proof.
He said: "I think it's very important that we stand up and say that we understand the Iranian people. Our beef, if we have one, is not with the Iranian people. It is specifically the same regime that the Iranian people, clearly, are fed up with as well."
