Iran’s foreign minister has warned that any Saudi or US military strike would result in ‘all-out-war’, after the allies blamed Tehran for attacks on Saudi oil at the weekend.

Mohammad Javad Zarif said Iranians ‘won’t blink to defend our territory’ and are willing to fight ‘to the last American soldier’ in the event of an invasion.

But he stressed that Iran is not looking for a war and is willing to return to the negotiating table, provided America complies with the 2015 nuclear deal that President Trump ripped up last year.

Speaking to CNN, Zarif continued to deny any Iranian responsibility for the attacks, instead pointing to Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen, who have claimed responsibility.

He later added on Twitter: ‘There’s no such thing as a “limited strike”. Iran does not want war, but we will not hesitate to defend ourselves.

‘Also, Yemenis, under brutal attack for years, have powerful motivation to build what it takes to defend themselves.’

Riyadh and Washington have both said they have ‘undeniable evidence’ of Tehran’s guilt, and are now pondering their next move.

Mike Pompeo described the attacks as an ‘act of war’ ahead of a meeting with Mohammed bin Salman, Saudi Arabia’s defence minister, on Wednesday.

After the meeting he tweeted that Saudi has ‘a right to defend itself’ and would be supported by America.
