“The risk is great and the risk will be even greater if you continue to turn a blind eye to severe violations of international law,” he said, pointing the finger at Israel and the United States.
Israeli and US actions have increased the risk of a regional war involving Iran, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in Germany on Sunday, as his country inaugurated a new domestically-built submarine armed with cruise missiles.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani presided over the launch, which was broadcast live on state television, in the port city of Bandar Abbas, the capital of Iran’s southern Hormozgan province.
The Fateh “Conqueror” submarine weighs 600 tons, Iranian television said, adding that it “enjoys state-of-the-art weaponry, including torpedoes, naval mines and cruise missiles that could be launched from a submerged position.”
