Iran's Zarif Accuses U.S. Of Lying About Drone Being Hit Over International Water
According to a report by Reuters, on Thursday, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that the United States is lying over its drone being hit by Iran in international waters and stating that Tehran will take the issue to the United Nations. Zarif tweeted, “The US wages #EconomicTerrorism on Iran, has conducted covert action against us & now encroaches on our territory. We don’t seek war, but will zealously defend our skies, land & waters. We’ll take this new aggression to #UN & show that the US is lying about international waters." Reuters reports that Iran shot down a U.S. military drone it claimed was on a spy mission over its territory, while Washington claims the aircraft was targeted in international air space in what it called “an unprovoked attack”.
