Iran's foreign minister downplayed the prospect of a new war in the region on Saturday, said Tehran opposed it and no party was under "illusion" the Islamic republic can be confronted. "We are certain... there will not be a war since neither we want a war nor does anyone have the illusion they can confront Iran in the region," Mohammad Javad Zarif told IRNA at the end of China visit.
Iran-US relation is really on the high edge and since last US Trumped pulled out of a 2015 nuclear deal and reimported unilateral sanctions that had lifted in exchange for Tehran backing its nuclear program.
