Pentagon chief says US doesn’t seek conflict with Iran

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The US does not seek conflict with Iran, they want to interact through diplomatic methods, said US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper on Wednesday.

“We are not looking for a conflict with Iran, we want to communicate with them through diplomatic methods,” Esper said at a Pentagon press conference.

He noted that to date, the parties “managed to avoid a conflict situation.” “So far, this has been successful, and we hope that the Iranians will agree to meet, talk and resolve issues,” Esper said.
