Zarif warns U.S. against war with Iran
Whoever starts a war with Iran will not be the one who finishes it, Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said, speaking alongside visiting German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas.
Zarif said that Iran will cooperate with the European signatories of the 2015 nuclear deal in order to save it.
"We had frank and serious talks with (visiting German Foreign Minister Heiko) Maas… Tehran will cooperate with EU signatories of the deal to save it," the Iranian diplomat noted.
He added that "whoever starts a war with us will not be the one who finishes it," Reuters reported.
Tensions between Iran and the United States have been simmering since Washington decided to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal in May 2018 and reinstated all sanctions against the Islamic Republic.
