Washington: United States President Donald Trump is threatening to meet provocations by Iran with great force, but says he's also willing to negotiate.

Mr Trump spoke to reporters as he left the White House yesterday en route to a rally in Pennsylvania.

The US President said, he thinks Iran would be making a very big mistake if they did anything. The Trump administration recently sent an aircraft carrier and other military resources to the Persian Gulf region, raising alarms over the possibility of a confrontation with Iran.

Meanwhile, Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has dismissed US President Trump's genocidal taunts and warned him not to threaten the country. Amid rising tensions, Mr Trump tweeted on Sunday, if Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran. (AIR NEWS)
