Iran's Zarif: There will be no war

Amid escalating tensions between Tehran and Washington, Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told IRNA in Beijing on Saturday that his country does not want a conflict, nor that there is an idea or illusion any country can confront Iran in the region.

"People around him [United States President Donald Trump] are pushing for war on the pretext that they want to make America stronger against Iran," Zarif said.

Yesterday, Iran's top diplomat said that the White House is divided on its policy on Iran, with President Trump's statements differing from what his aides do.
