Zarif: Saudi Arabia And UAE Want To “Fight Iran To The Last American”

BAGHDAD, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Friday it appeared that Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates want to "fight Iran to the last American."

Zarif was responding to remarks made by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday during a visit to Abu Dhabi. Saying While Iran's foreign minister threatens all-out war and fighting to the last American, we are here to build an alliance aimed at achieving peace,

"Secretary Pompeo got it wrong," Zarif said on Twitter on Friday. Added It is not Iran that wants to fight to the last American but his hosts from Team B who seem to want to fight Iran to the last American.

Zarif said earlier that the so-called team B, which includes Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Abu Dhabi's crown prince, could lure the US president into a conflict with Tehran.
