Iran's Zarif says Saudi, UAE want to "fight Iran to the last American"
Lebanon News

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Friday that US-allied Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates seem to wish to "fight Iran to the last American".

 

Zarif was responding to a statement a day earlier by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo during a visit to Abu Dhabi that: "While the foreign minister of Iran is threatening all-out war and to fight to the last American, we're here to build up a coalition aimed at achieving peace."

 

Zarif tweeted on Friday: "@SecPompeo has it the other way around: It's not #Iran that wishes to fight to the last American; rather, it is his #B_Team hosts who seem to wish to fight Iran to the last American."

 

Zarif has in the past said that a so-called B-team including Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Abu Dhabi's crown prince could goad the US president into a conflict with Tehran.
