“If US and clients don’t feel safe, it’s because they’re despised by the people of the region,” Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said via Twitter commenting on the recent speculations by US-Israeli mainstream media that the US is increasing forces in the Middle East in order to deter the threat from Iran.
