Iran alleges US ‘plot to FABRICATE pretext for war’

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif accuses the United States of creating a “pretext” for war with the Islamic Republic, after the US flew strategic bombers over the Persian Gulf yesterday for the second time in a month.

He tweets: “Instead of fighting Covid in US, Donald Trump & cohorts waste billions to fly B52s & send armadas to OUR region

“Intelligence from Iraq indicate plot to FABRICATE pretext for war. Iran doesn’t seek war but will OPENLY & DIRECTLY defend its people, security & vital interests.”
