Tehran (AFP) – Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has warned the United States of “painful consequences for everybody” if there is an escalation in tensions with the Islamic republic.
Zarif also accused the US of “playing a very, very dangerous game” in an interview with CNN aired on Tuesday.
The article goes on to state the following:
“There will be painful consequences for everybody (if) there is an escalation against Iran, that’s for sure,” he said.
Tensions have risen between Washington and Tehran as the US has deployed a naval carrier group and B-52 bombers to the Gulf over unspecified alleged Iranian “threats”.
“Having all these military assets in a small waterway is in itself prone to accident particularly when you have people who are interested in accidents. So extreme prudence is required and we believe the US is playing a very, very dangerous game,” Zarif said.
US President Donald Trump further stoked the fire in a tweet on Sunday that suggested Iran would be destroyed if it attacked US interests.
