  • Trump tells Pentagon chief he doesn’t want war with Iran

The Federal Aviation Administration has warned USA airlines flying over the Gulf to exercise caution "due to heightened military activities and increased political tensions in the region".

"This presents" a growing inadvertent threat to USA civil aviation operations on account of the possibility of miscalculation or misidentification", the warning stated.

It also came as Lloyd's of London warned of increasing risks to maritime shipping in the region.

"Heightened military activities and increased political tensions in the region which present an increasing inadvertent risk to United States civil aviation operations due to the potential for miscalculation or misidentification", the FAA said in a statement. Earlier this week, the United States pulled some diplomatic staff from its embassy in Baghdad following weekend attacks on four oil tankers in the Gulf. Iran has denied responsibility.

Bahrain on Saturday asked citizens to leave Iran and Iraq and Exxon Mobil evacuated foreign staff from a southern Iraqi oilfield amid heightened fears of attacks by Iran or allied forces in the region.

"There will be no war because neither we want a war, nor has anyone the idea or illusion that it can confront Iran in the region", Mohammad Javad Zarif told IRNA on Saturday, during a trip to Beijing.

Washington has deployed an aircraft carrier group and B-52 bombers to the region against what it claims is an imminent threat from Tehran.

How is the Middle East reacting to increasing US-Iran tensions?

"America can not afford the costs of a new war, and the country is in a bad situation in terms of manpower and social conditions", he added.

US President Donald Trump "maximum pressure" campaign against Iran has exacerbated fissures between the president's top foreign policy advisers, Politico reported Friday.

"At least Iran doesn't know what to think, which at this point may very well be a good thing!" he tweeted.

"U.S. diplomats warned Saturday that commercial airliners flying across the broader Persian Gulf confronted a probability of being" misidentified" amid increased tensions between the united states and Iran. "China firmly opposes unilateral sanctions and the so-called "long-arm" jurisdiction imposed by the United States on Iran", Wang said, according to China's Xinhua state news agency. Wang's comments were inaudible, but China has accused the US of raising tensions in the Middle East with its more assertive approach to Iran, as well as upsetting energy markets and the global economy.

Indeed, there was a new potential flash point in Iran's standoff with the United States, stemming from its vow last week to step away from some of the limitations imposed by the nuclear deal, a year after the U.S. pulled out of the agreement that was negotiated between Tehran and world powers in 2015.
