Bahrain asks its citizens to leave Iran, Iraq 'immediately'

Bahrain asks its citizens to leave Iran, Iraq 'immediately'

"If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran", he said in a tweet on Sunday.

"The fault lies with the Iranians, not the United States or any other nation".

"There will be no war because neither do we want a war, nor has anyone the idea or illusion it can confront Iran in the region", Zarif said at the conclusion of a visit to Beijing.

The tweet came as an apparent response to the United States president's comment that because of the "fraudulent and highly inaccurate coverage of Iran" in the USA news media, Tehran "doesn't know what to think, which at this point may very well be a good thing!"

Taking a softer stance on the matter, President Donald Trump Friday replied to a question about going to war with Iran saying with "I hope not".

The narrative is also pushed by Iran's regime and particularly foreign minister Javad Zarif.

Bahrain on Saturday asked citizens to leave Iran and Iraq and Exxon Mobil evacuated foreign staff from a southern Iraqi oilfield amid heightened fears of attacks by Iran or allied forces in the region.

"Iranians have stood tall for millennia while aggressors all gone". "#NeverThreatenAnIranian. Try respect-it works!"

But every day we see a new story about how this administration is trying provoke conflict, like sending huge bombers to the region, or raising the possibility of sending more than 100,000 troops.

"Mike Pompeo is doing a great job".

The latest frictions come after Iran suspended its commitments under the 2015 global nuclear deal, and threatened to resume production of enriched uranium which is used to make reactor fuel and nuclear weapons.

Since the United States pulled out of Iran's 2015 nuclear accord with world powers previous year and imposed crippling sanctions on Iran, tensions between the two nations have been on the rise.

Amidst all this, European foreign ministers have urged Iran to respect the nuclear deal and say that they plan to continue trade with the country despite the imposition of U.S. sanctions.

Last week it was reported that after Trump publicly appealed to Iran to call him amid heightened tensions with Tehran, the White House contacted the Swiss to share the phone number. But noticeably the expected U.S. military action did not come following the apparently isolated embassy incident. There were no casualties and it is not yet clear who was behind the attack.

"We have to prepare ourselves", he said.

Mr Trump's threats on Twitter came hours after the first reports of the rocket attack.

In recent days, the USA has deployed the USS Abraham Lincoln aircraft carrier to the region and reportedly drawn up plans to send 120,000 troops to the Middle East.

Dutch and German soldiers said they had suspended their military training programmes in the country. Its conclusion was based in part on a similarity in the shrapnel found on the Norwegian tanker to shrapnel from drone boats used by Houthi rebels off the coast of Yemen.

A state-aligned Saudi newspaper called for the USA to launch attacks on the country.

In recent weeks, concern has been increasing that National Security Adviser John Bolton, a long-time hawk on Iran who was instrumental in instigating the invasion of Iraq under George W. Bush, might be working to edge the administration closer to some kind of military action against Tehran.
