Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Monday accused the United States of turning the Gulf region into a “matchbox ready to ignite”, according to Al Jazeera television, Euronews reports.

The Gulf waterway “is narrow, it will become less safe as foreign (navy) vessels increase their presence in it,” the Qatar-based channel cited him as saying in an interview.

“The region has become a matchbox ready to ignite because America and its allies are flooding it with weapons,” he said.
