WASHINGTON – US President Donald Trump has said that Iran would be met with great force if it attempted anything against US interests in the Middle East, the Radio Pakistan reported.
Talking to media outside White House in Washington, the US president said that Iran’s hostile behaviour towards the US is a big mistake and could prove to be dangerous for it.
