UK sides with US amid rising tensions, threatens Iran with ‘retaliation’

The British government, which has on several occasions endorsed Washington’s anti-Iran rhetoric amid heightened tensions between the two countries, has once again taken sides with Washington by brazenly threatening the Islamic Republic that in case US interests were attacked in the region, there would be retaliation.

Britain's Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt on Monday warned the Islamic Republic against provoking the United States as tensions escalate between Tehran and Washington over the US deployment of an aircraft carrier, a bomber task force, and an assault ship to the Persian Gulf to counter alleged threats posed by Iran.
