  • Iran FM warns against Israeli adventurism

Iran’s Foreign Minister has accused Israel of engaging in 'adventurism', saying the Israeli regime’s policy may lead to military conflicts between the countries.

Iran Press/Iran newsMohammed Javad Zarif has made the comments in a recent interview with the German Süddeutsche Zeitung newspaper, which will be published later today.

During the interview, Zarif stressed that Iran was in Syria at the invitation of the Syrian government, while Israel was violating Lebanese and Syrian air space, as well as international law, Reuters reported.

There is adventurism on Israel’s side, and this is always dangerous, Zarif told the newspaper.

Asked if he saw an emerging military conflict between Iran and Israel, Zarif said that I do not, but we cannot exclude the possibility.

Speaking at the Munich Security Conference on Sunday, Zarif, furthermore, accused Israel of looking for war and warned that its actions and those of the United States were increasing the chances of a clash in the region.

Earlier on February 15, Zarif said in an interview with NBC News that he hoped people will find out that it's suicidal to engage in a war with Iran.

Zarif's comment came to Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu who earlier had made a statement that was translated by his office as urging war with Iran.

Israeli officials tried to soften the reference by altering the English translation, but it nonetheless startled Iranians and even the White House.105/203
