Tehran has no role in attacks on US forces: Iran Envoy

Iran’s Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the United Nations Amir Saeid Iravani has said that Iran does not have any role in attacks on US forces in the region.

The Islamic Republic’s United Nations ambassador told CNN that there was cooperation and collaboration, but that Iran was not directing any of those operations.

“We have said very clearly that Iran is not involving in any attack against the United States forces in the region,” he said, adding that any attacks on US forces in Syria and Iraq were undertaken by others at “their own decision and by their own direction.”

In light of mounting fears of a wider regional war, Iravani said he has not had any “direct conversation” about containing the conflict in Israel with his US counterpart in the UN.

Iravani said Iran has “insisted that we are not going to expand this war front,” and has worked to calm allies in the region, but said others needed to do their part.

He indicated the conflict could still expand if the fighting in Gaza continued.
