Iran says U.S. creates tension in Mideast
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Monday that the United States has created tension in the Middle East region, Trend reports citing Xinhua.
"The United States has set fire on our region," Zarif said at the international conference on "Unilateralism and International Law" held at Allameh Tabataba'i University in Iran's capital Tehran.
"If there is a war, there won't be a winner or loser. There will be two losers, one with a heavier loss and the other with lesser," he noted.
The Iranian minister also slammed the United States for what he called leaving international treaties.
"The United States pulled out of the Iranian nuclear deal, the NAFTA (the North American Free Trade Agreement), the Paris climate deal, the missile deal with Russia, and many others. I hope they also leave the UN Security Council so we are relieved," Zarif said.
