Iran hopes that the United States will return to diplomatic policy and begin to fulfill its obligations. Tehran is ready for all options, but prefers peaceful resolution of disagreements, adviser to Iranian President Hesameddin Ashen said.
«The world will be safer if the United States returns to diplomacy and fulfills its obligations», — he wrote on Twitter. Previously, protesters set fire to the gates of the US Embassy in Baghdad because of the shelling of the Shiite Hezbollah by the US military.
After that, US President Donald Trump accused the Iranian side of organizing unrest near the US diplomatic mission in Iraq. At the same time, he emphasized that he did not want to enter the war with Iran.
The Iranian Foreign Ministry rejected the US allegations and called for a review of the «destructive policy regarding the region». According to the Iranian supreme leader Ali Khamenei, Tehran will strike at someone who encroaches on the interests of the republic.
