Conflict avoidance spreads in Iran
President Trump's disapproval of the worsening of the situation in response to Iran's retaliatory attacks on US military bases has given rise to perceptions that large-scale clashes have been avoided in Iran. However, the gap between the two nations over Iran's nuclear program is unlikely to deepen.
U.S. President Trump spoke to the public yesterday that Iran had attacked a U.S. military base in neighboring Iraq in retaliation for the killing of the commander, and that no U.S. troops were killed or injured. No further exacerbation was expressed.
In response to this, perceptions that a large-scale conflict had been avoided in Iran became widespread, and citizens of Tehran, the capital, said, "I do not want tension to build up, I don't think so. War is not good." Was asked.
On the other hand, the United States has unilaterally withdrawn from the nuclear agreement over Iran's nuclear development issue and is strengthening sanctions on Iran.
After retaliation, Iran's chief leader, Khamenei, further emphasized that it is important to eliminate the presence of the United States in this region, stating that the U.S. military should be eliminated from the Middle East.
Despite widespread perception that large-scale clashes have been avoided, the gap between the two countries is unlikely to be deeply resolved.
