The commander of US forces in the Middle East, General Kenneth McKinsey, called in an interview with Agence France-Presse, Iran, to refrain from any provocation, as Washington intensifies its efforts to save the nuclear deal.
“I think this is an appropriate time for everyone to act with caution, and anticipate what will happen,” said the commander of the US Central Command (Centcom). But he stressed that “Despite this, I think we will be prepared for any eventuality.”
The American general urged Iran not to carry out any “nefarious activities”, in an attempt to rebuild confidence, saying, “I think they want to be recognized as a responsible member and a stabilizing factor in the region.” “We are constantly evaluating the issue of protecting our forces in the region,” he said. We look at that very seriously. Therefore, I am sure that we are ready for anything. ”
For his part, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas called for saving the nuclear agreement that Iran signed in 2015 with world powers, which he said was in Tehran’s interest. In his speech to the Conference on Disarmament, sponsored by the United Nations in Geneva, Maas indicated the US President’s willingness, Joe Biden, to rejoin the agreement, adding, “It is in Iran’s interest to change course now, before the agreement is irreparably damaged.” Maas said that Germany expects “full compliance, full transparency and full cooperation” from Iran with the International Atomic Energy Agency, whose head, Rafael Grossi, returned Sunday from a trip to Tehran.
