Tehran: Iran would not wage war against any nation, President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday.
Sounding a note of restraint after United States announced more troop deployments to Middle East.
In a speech, Rouhani dismissed US efforts to isolate Iran as unsuccessful and suggested US administration of President Trump was inexperienced in international affairs.
But he said Iran did not seek conflict.
Fears of a confrontation between Iran and its long-time foe US have mounted since Thursday when two oil tankers were attacked near strategic Strait of Hormuz shipping lane, which Washington blamed on Tehran.
Exceeding uranium cap at heart of accord would prompt a diplomatic crisis, forcing other signatories, which include China, Russia and European powers, to confront Iran.
