Iran Blames U.S. for Setting Groundwork for World War Three

The Free Beacon [1] reported:

Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, the chairman of Iran’s powerful Expediency Council, warned in comments that the “outbreak of World War III” is coming in the near future, according to a report [2] by Iran’s Fars News Agency.

“The threat of the outbreak of the third world war by the terrorists is serious,” Rafsanjani was quoted as saying in a meeting with Italian Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni, who was in Tehran this week for a meeting with Iranian officials.

Rafsanjani blamed the United States and NATO for fostering the conditions that will lead to World War III.
