US vows to respond with military force if Iran 'attacks American interests'

The development comes just a few weeks after the United States deployed an aircraft carrier strike group and a bomber task force to the Persian Gulf in what White House National Security Adviser John Bolton described as a "clear and unmistakable message" to Iran, ONA reports citing Sputnik.

US Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook said on Thursday that Washington would respond with military force if Iran "attacks American interests" in the Middle East.

"We have redeployed our forces in the region. We think that this redeployment has a deterrent effect on possible erroneous calculations of the regime", he said.
