Pelosi: We have no appetite for war with Iran

United States House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told CNN that the United States has "absolutely no appetite for going to war with Iran" following escalated tensions between the US and Iran after Washington blamed Tehran for the attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.

"We have absolutely no appetite for going to war, or to be provocative to create situations that might evoke responses, where mistakes could be made," Pelosi said.

She also questioned the US Administration's motivation to be "provocative" with Tehran. "What is their motivation to be provocative with the Iranians? Why did the president turn his back on the Iranian nuclear agreement? What's the logic except some other issue – that it was negotiated by President Obama?" Pelosi said after Iran stated it will announce further steps to reduce its commitments in the Iran nuclear deal.
