TEHRAN, Iran  — Iran’s foreign minister traveled Friday to China on his Asian tour aimed at keeping world markets open to Tehran amid an intense sanctions campaign from the U.S. as tensions across the Persian Gulf remain high.


Concerns about a possible conflict have flared since the White House ordered warships and bombers to the region to counter an alleged,

unexplained threat from Iran that has seen America order nonessential diplomatic staff out of Iraq.


Tensions have also ratcheted up in the region after authorities said that a sabotage operation targeted four oil tankers on Sunday off the coast of the United Arab Emirates, and Iran-aligned rebels in Yemen claimed responsibility for a drone attack Tuesday on a crucial Saudi oil pipeline.
