The Iranian Ambassador to the UK Hamid Baeidinejad warned that the United States and Iran are headed toward “a confrontation which is very serious for everybody in the region.”
In an exclusive interview with Christiane Amanpour, the Ambassador reacted to escalated tensions between the two countries, as the United States continues to blame Iran for an attack on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.
Ambassador Baeidinejad, a senior Iranian official within the Foreign Ministry, denied the allegations, and cautioned the White House would be “very sorry” to underestimate Iran, should a military conflict ensue.
When asked who else could be responsible for the attack, Baeidinejad pointed to other countries in the region “who have invested heavily, billions and billions of dollars to draft the United States into a military conflict with Iran.”
