United States says Iran threats are 'on hold' after deploying bombers

"In my opinion, there was not any information there that pointed to any reason why we should be engaging in talk of war with Iran", said Representative Ruben Gallego, a Democratic member of the House Armed Services Committee.

Trump said on Monday that Iran would be met with "great force" if it attempted anything against US interests in the Middle East. Never threaten the United States again!'

Iran has portrayed the hot and cold rhetoric as evidence Trump is being goaded into war against his better judgement by hardline aides such as National Security Adviser John Bolton.

Since that development, Iran has announced it will back away from the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, an accord that President Donald Trump pulled America out of a year ago. Last week, Pompeo ordered all non-essential staff based at the U.S Embassy in Baghdad to leave Iraq.

The US President told reporters as he headed for an event in Pennsylvania that he was still willing to speak to his associates in Iran "when they're ready". Last week three USA officials told Reuters that Trump had told his top advisers he does not want war with Iran. The United Arab Emirates, meanwhile, alleged that four oil tankers were sabotaged off its coast, and Iranian-allied rebels in Yemen have launched drone attacks into Saudi Arabia.

President Donald Trump says Iran will be met with "great force" if it attempts anything against United States interests in the Middle East, adding that Tehran has been very hostile toward Washington.

After the Senate meeting, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said they had told lawmakers the recent attacks on shipping and a pipeline in the Middle East were directed by the Iranian government and that US officials had detected worrisome communication between Tehran and a Shi'ite militia that prompted the military to quickly relocate an aircraft carrier.

Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps, or IRGC, was recently designated as a foreign terrorist organization by the Trump administration, the first ever designation of an entire foreign military. "Our aim is to make progress toward a brighter future for this relationship, and for the Iranian people", Pompeo said in prepared remarks for the closed door briefing.

Mr Zarif also used the hashtag #NeverThreatenAnIranian, a reference to a comment he made during intense negotiations for the 2015 nuclear accord.

Almost half - 49% - of all Americans disapprove of how Trump is handling relations with Iran, the poll found, with 31% saying they strongly disapprove.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Zarif returned the rhetorical fire.

In April, hardliners in the Trump administration pushed to label Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization, despite warnings that the move could endanger USA personnel in the Middle East.

Mr Shanahan said the recent U.S. actions in the region were based on "credible threats" to American forces and interests in the Middle East.

Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Adel al-Jubeir, said the kingdom "does not want a war, is not looking for it and will do everything to prevent it".
