“Iran does not want war,” said Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo echoed this message, saying, “We are there to deter aggression, President Trump does not want war.” Our France 24 correspondant added that this sentiment is equally shared among the members of the EU who remain part of the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, as well as by China and Russia.
