Trump is not after war: Iranian ambassador
Iran's ambassador to UN told CBS correspondent that he thinks US president is not aimed at waging war with Iran.
He expressed concerned over hardliners in Trump's administration -- coupled with 'fake intelligence' -- are escalating instability in the region.
Earlier in the day, Iran’s ambassador to the United Nations said in an interview with NPR’s 'Morning Edition.' that the Islamic Republic is not interested in escalating regional tensions but has the "right to defend ourselves."
Takht-e Ravanchi said: “We are not interested in the escalation of tensions in our region. If something goes wrong, everyone loses.” The Iranian diplomat also highlighted that Iran should always be prepared to defend Its territorial integrity and sovereignty.
