Trump 'hopes' not to go to war against Iran

United States President Donald Trump said when asked if the US will go to war against Iran, "I hope not."

Earlier in the day, House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi warned the US president that only Congress can declare war on a country and Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif stated that there is no possibility at the moment for Tehran and Washington to hold talks.

Tensions between the two countries increased further as a result of the failure of the Iran nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which the US left last year. On the anniversary on Washington's withdrawal, Iran announced it would be cutting some of its commitments from the agreement as a result of the failure of European parties to the deal to overcome US sanctions on Iran.
