EU warns Trump against provocations after statement on Iran
The European Commission warns against any further escalation in the Middle East region in light of increased tensions between the United States and Iran, spokesperson for EU Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Maja Kocijancic said.
"I won't specifically comment any particular Tweet but, on the wider situation, I would say that the region does not need further elements of destabilisation. This is something that we have been saying consistently, and that any provocations must be avoided and all efforts should be made to defuse tensions", Kocijancic said at a press briefing.
The statement comes after U.S. President Donald Trump's Tweet, which said that "if Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran."
