Iran’s Rouhani warns Trump ‘war with Iran mother of all wars’


Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday cautioned US President Donald Trump about pursuing hostile policies against Tehran, saying “America should know … war with Iran is the mother of all wars,” the state new agency IRNA reported. 

Iran faces increased US pressure and looming sanctions after Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from a 2015 international deal over Iran’s nuclear programme. 

Addressing a gathering of Iranian diplomats, Rouhani said: “Mr Trump, don’t play with the lion’s tail, this would only lead to regret,” IRNA reported. 

“America should know that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace, and war with Iran is the mother of all wars,” Rouhani said.
