Iran warns Trump about 'mother of all wars'

Bennie Garza | 23 July, 2018, 06:02

Having withdrawn from the landmark 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers, Washington is determined to isolate Iran and pile on economic pressure with a full reimposition of sanctions, starting in August.

Addressing Iranian diplomats, Mr Rouhani said: "America should know that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace, and war with Iran is the mother of all wars".

Rouhani, responding to Trump's attempt to disrupt Iran's oil export industry, emphasized his country's influence over the Strait of Hormuz and its strategically important shipping lanes.

"If the Trump administration had a smidgen of goodwill, it would abolish the travel ban against the people of Iran who have never engaged in any acts of terrorism on US soil", Vaez added.

Current and former US officials said the campaign painted Iranian leaders in a harsh light, at times using information that is exaggerated or contradicts other official pronouncements, including comments by previous administrations.

After the USA pulled out of the nuclear agreement, Iran made clear that it wants to keep the deal alive, but only if the remaining five powers can guarantee that Iran will not face economic isolation under the sanctions that the US has started to revive.

"One who understands politics even a little bit wouldn't say "we will stop Iran's oil exports", he said, warning that the Strait of Hormuz is only one of the straits that Iran has control over.

Trump has suggested Iranian leaders are "going to call me and say 'let's make a deal"' but Iran has rejected talks.

Iranian officials have in the past threatened to block the Strait of Hormuz, a major oil shipping route, in retaliation for any hostile USA action.

But some US officials and other experts cautioned that by fueling turmoil in Iran, the US administration could foster greater authoritarian rule and a more aggressive foreign policy, raising the threat of a US-Iran confrontation.

"The enemy's behaviour is unpredictable", Tasnim quoted military chief of staff General Mohammad Baqeri as saying.

For his part, the Austrian official said his country, as a member state of the European Union, supports the nuclear accord reached between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council - the United States, Britain, France, China and Russian Federation - plus Germany.

Khamenei also voiced support for continued talks with Iran's European partners in the nuclear deal which are preparing a package of economic measures to offset the US pullout from the accord.

But the United States has somewhat eased its stance, saying it may grant sanction waivers to some allies that are particularly reliant on Iranian supplies.
