Tehran, Jun 19: There will not be any military confrontation between Iran and the United States, the secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council has said.
Ali Shamkhani was quoted as saying on Wednesday, according to the state news agency, IRNA.
Fears of a confrontation between Iran and the US have mounted since last Thursday when two oil tankers were attacked, which Washington has blamed on long-time foe Tehran, more than a year after President Donald Trump said Washington was withdrawing from a 2015 nuclear deal. Tehran denied any responsibility.
“There will not be a military confrontation between Iran and America since there is no reason for a war. Accusing other countries has turned into a common practice among US officials as they try to pressure other countries,” Ali Shamkhani said. (UNI)
