Hassan Rouhani: "War with Iran is 'Mother of All Wars"

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has warned that a possible war against Iran will be "a mother of all wars", ONA reports.

In a speech broadcast live on state-run TV on Tuesday, Rouhani also reiterated that if the US wants to hold talks with Iran, it should scrap all the sanctions against the Islamic Republic.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran favors talks and negotiations and, if the US really wants to talk, before anything else it should lift all sanctions”, he underscored.

The statement comes amid increasing tensions between Washington and Iran as President Donald Trump issued an executive order on 24 June authorizing sanctions on officials associated with Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Hosseini Khamenei.
