Serhat TUNAR -TDO- ( 17.02.2020)- Iranian President Hassan Rouhani made the remarks at a press conference in Tehran and answered questions from members of the press. Rouhani said they were against the war and thought the United States was not pursuing war either.
Pointing out that a possible war in the Persian Gulf would be to everyone's detriment, Rouhani said: "the countries of the region have consistently warned the United States of war. The United Arab Emirates and several other countries have kept the United States out of a possible war in the region. A war in the region is at everyone's expense. Iran, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Qatar and Kuwait don't matter, everyone gets hurt by it. No country benefits from war."
Rouhani argued that the countries at the mouth of the Persian Gulf would suffer great damage from a possible war, and added: "We are against war, and I think the United States is not after war. Because the United States knows what damage War will do to them. Mr. Trump is also seeking to win the election. He runs all his policies accordingly. Trump knows the battle will eliminate his chances of winning in elections."
