Iran’s foreign minister accused Israel of looking for war and warned that its behaviour and that of the United States was increasing the chances of a clash in the region.
“Certainly, some people are looking for war … Israel,” Mohammad Javad Zarif said at the Munich Security Conference.
Accusing Israel of violating international law after bombing campaigns in Syria, Zarif also criticised European powers for not calling out Israel and the United States for their behaviour in the region.
“The risk (of war) is great. The risk will be even greater if you continue to turn a blind eye to severe violations of international law.
“Israeli behaviour is putting international law on the shelf, U.S. behaviour is putting international law on the shelf.”
Zarif, who said Iran was committed to a 2015 nuclear deal with world powers for now, also accused France, Britain and Germany of not doing enough to ensure Tehran received the economic benefits of that accord.
