Iranian foreign minister wants 'respect' from US

Iranian foreign minister wants 'respect' from US”

Iran and the Russian military accused Israel of being behind the attack, which, according to Iranian news agencies, claimed the lives of seven of its military personnel. Israel downed the drone and, during a reprisal raid, lost an F-16 jet to Syrian ground fire. Israel fears the S-300 would hamper its ability to attack military sites in Syria that are unsafe to the Jewish State and would therefore allow Iran to strengthen its military foothold in that country.

Speaking at the gathering, the prime minister referred to the Iranian foreign minister's claims that Israel is violating global law, saying "This is the foreign minister of a country that sends armed drones into Israel and fires missiles at Saudi Arabia".

A Twitter account tracking air traffic around the world recently published details of at least two Syrian Air Force IL-76 cargo flights between Iran and Syria, and the United States official told CNN that other flights including at least one Iranian cargo plane have also been monitored by intelligence services.

Zarif spoke to CBS' Face the Nation on Friday; the full interview will be broadcast Sunday and portions of the transcript were made available to The Associated Press. This is the foreign minister of a country that has recently sent armed drones against Israel and missiles against Saudi Arabia.

"The issue on which we disagree is how we can best contain this", she said.

"If anyone shoots at our planes, we will destroy them", Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said on Tuesday.

Israel is "not interested" in escalation, Katz told the Ynet news site.

The 2015 deal with Iran, which was negotiated by several world powers, including Germany and the United States, calls on Tehran to curb its nuclear program in exchange for an easing of sanctions imposed amid fears that the Islamic Republic was seeking to develop a nuclear arsenal.

Zarif said Iran might respond to any unraveling of the deal by "resuming at a much greater speed our nuclear activities".

Though Israel didn't acknowledge responsibility for the attack, it fit a familiar pattern.

Shamkhani concluded the Zionist regime must know that "hit and run" policy is not working anymore, warning that there will be a price to pay.
