President Hassan Rouhani slammed a new US-led coalition patrolling the region’s waterways following the Saudi oil plant attack, reports The Sun.
For its part, Iran denies being responsible and has warned any retaliatory attack targeting it will result in an “all-out war.”
That’s as it has begun enriching uranium beyond the terms of its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, which the US unilaterally withdrew from over a year earlier.
Mr Rouhani said Iran was willing to “extend the hand of friendship and brotherhood” to Persian Gulf nations and was “even ready to forgive their past mistakes.”
“Those who want to link the region’s incidents to the Islamic Republic of Iran are lying like their past lies that have been revealed,” the president said.
“If they are truthful and really seek security in the region, they must not send weapons, fighter jets, bombs and dangerous arms to the region.”
US WANTS DIPLOMACY ‘TO SUCCEED’
