Leave Middle East ‘or face grave danger’, Iranian president warns foreign powers

Iran's President warns Trump of 'mother of all wars'

The President of Iran, Hassan Rouhani, has warned foreign powers to withdraw their armed forces from the Middle East or face grave danger if they choose to remain in the region.

“Today, the American soldier is in danger, tomorrow the European soldier could be in danger,” Hassan Rouhani said in televised remarks on Wednesday, without elaborating.

The Iranian president’s remarks come after the United Kingdom, France and Germany challenged Tehran over breaking limits of nuclear deal.

In a related development, a new video showing how two missiles fired by Iranian forces which hit a Ukrainian passenger plane over Iran’s capital, Tehran, killing all 176 passengers and crew on board, has surfaced.
