Russian Official Warns of Military Escalation in Iran


The Secretary of the Security Council of Russia, Nikolai Patrushev, said on Wednesday that he believes there could be a military escalation in Iran, adding that that the U.S. is driven by Israel.

In an interview with the Daily Kommersant, Patrushev said, “We have been hearing for years claims that the Iranians will produce an atomic bomb, but no one has proven the existence of a military component to Iran’s nuclear program.”
