Rouhani warns of ‘decisive’ response if Iran space violated again
Tehran (KNA) - Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says Tehran is not after war with Washington, but will give the United States a “decisive” response if it once again violates Iran’s territorial space.
Rouhani made the remarks in a telephone conversation with his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, on Tuesday, stressing that Iran did not want war with the United States but would confront any aggression.
"If the Americans want to violate the waters or airspace of Iran again, Iran's armed forces have a duty to confront them and they will give a decisive response," Rouhani said.
The Iranian president also emphasized that Tehran has been always committed to providing the region with security and stability.
Macron, for his part, said that tensions in the region will not be useful for any country and called for avoiding a "dangerous escalation" in the region.
