1,000 More US Troops Deployed To The Middle East

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani acknowledged his nation didn't seek to wage war with any nation and had remained "trusty" to its worldwide obligations.

His remarks came a day after the Pentagon said that it will deploy 1,000 extra troops to the Middle East "for defensive purposes".

"We call on all parties to remain rational and restrained, not to take any actions to provoke the escalation of tension in the region, and not to open a Pandora's box", Wangtold reporters in Beijing.

The official also said it took the Iranian sailors only eight minutes to remove the unexploded limpet mine lodged in the Japanese tanker, which showed proficiency in handling it that also points to Iran.

Pompeo said he made the trip to meet with commanders who would be responsible for any operations in the Gulf to ensure that America's diplomatic and military efforts are coordinated "to make sure that we're in the position to do the right thing".

Many prominent commentators and journalists expressed disbelief over Omar's comments while questioning her loyalty to the United States.

The United States and Iran said Tuesday they were not seeking war with each other as tensions simmered between the two in the Persian Gulf and President Donald Trump vowed the USA would respond to any attack.

Pompeo said at a news conference with Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov in the Black Sea resort of Sochi on May 14 that "we fundamentally do not seek a war with Iran".

Iran has said it will break compliance with the global agreement that keeps it from making nuclear weapons.

Trump also told TIME he would "certainly" order a war if necessary to stop Iran getting nuclear weapons - something the country says it does not want to do. Neither Shamkhani nor the Iranian intelligence official specified how many alleged CIA agents were arrested or which other countries were involved in dismantling the network.

In withdrawing the US from the deal, Trump said it does nothing to stop Iran from developing missiles or creating problems in the Gulf region and Middle East.

It's an asymmetrical struggle; in the global economy, the US holds most of the cards.

The deal, negotiated by the Obama administration in 2015, was supposed to end Iran's nuclear program in exchange for easing sanctions that would provide Iran with an estimated $50 billion to $150 billion in relief.

Trump's administration has accused Iran of being behind the explosions on tankers in the Gulf of Oman, a vital oil shipping route. This is in addition to the 1,500 already earmarked for deployment after last month's tanker bombings and a rocket attack on the US embassy in Iraq.

Highlighting that this move "will be reversed once other parties live up to their commitments", Iran's atomic energy administration said it will go beyond the uranium stockpile limit determined by JCPOA from 27 June. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.

While not commenting explicitly on the nuclear deal, France and Germany waded into the conversation in an attempt to de-escalate tensions between the U.S. and Iran. Some old patterns of the US-Iranian nuclear crisis seem to rise once again.

China and Iran have close energy ties and Beijing has been angered by United States threats against countries and companies that violate U.S. sanctions by importing Iranian oil. The deal also did not cover Iran's development of ballistic missiles.

Iran would not give European powers more time beyond July 8 to save its nuclear deal by shielding it from US sanctions, spokesman for Iran's Atomic Energy Organization Behrouz Kamalvandi said.
