UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt warned of «the risk of a conflict happening by accident» between the United States and Iran, while arriving at a gathering of EU foreign ministers in Brussels on Monday.
«I think there is a real concern that escalation that is unintended could end up with a much more serious situation that we're fearing,» said Hunt when asked about the potential for conflict... Еще between Washington and Tehran.
Hunt's remarks came amid the US deploying B-52 bombers, the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier and associated vessels to the Persian Gulf over the weekend to counter unspecified threats from Iran.
On Wednesday, Iran announced a partial withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal.
The announcement came on the anniversary of US President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw the US from the deal.
