US, Allies Turning Gulf Region into 'Matchbox Ready to Ignite': Iranian Foreign Minister

Tehran Times

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has accused the United States and its allies of turning the Persian Gulf region into a "matchbox ready to ignite", according to Reuters, citing the diplomat's interview with Al Jazeera television, Sputnik News reports. 

''The Gulf waterway "is narrow, it will become less safe as foreign (navy) vessels increase their presence in it", the Qatar-based TV channel cited him as saying.

"The region has become a matchbox ready to ignite because America and its allies are flooding it with weapons", Zarif said.
