Former US senator and presidential candidate Mitt Romney has ruled out war between the United States and Iran as tension between the two countries reached an unprecedented level this month.

“I do not think that either US President Donald Trump or his national security adviser, John Bolton, wants to go to the Middle East or go to war,” Romney said in televised remarks on Sunday. “There is no interest in doing so.”

The tension between the United States and Iran has risen to an unprecedented level in recent days. Washington has stepped up its economic and military pressure on Iran by stopping all Iranian oil exports, boosting the presence of US naval and air forces in the Gulf and evacuating most of its employees in Iraq amid fears of a military conflict. .

Tension between Tehran and Washington has grown since Trump’s administration decided to pull out of Iran’s nuclear deal a year ago and began to re-impose tough sanctions on Tehran, a move that was not supported by other countries participating in the pact – the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia and China.

Trump denied a report in the New York Times last week that Washington was preparing to send a team of 120,000 troops to the Middle East, saying at the same time it would send more if necessary. But he also said he did not want to go to war with Iran, which is confirmed by Iran for its part.
