Defense Minister Amir Hatami says authorities need to be alert to the US decision to pursue a new strategy against Iran, which aims to create a complicated situation for the country.

“The US seeks to implement its new strategy against the Islamic Republic of Iran by creating a complicated atmosphere,” Hatami said at a Tuesday conference in Tehran, Press TV reported.

He pointed to US President Donald Trump’s efforts to change Iran’s nuclear deal with other western powers, and Washington’s opposition to removal of sanctions against Tehran as part of the new US strategy against Iran.

Hatami noted that the US seeks to complicate the situation through attempts to distract the attention of Iranian decision-makers, but officials stand against such threats by relying on “the nation’s vigilance and the country’s defense might.”

On Friday, US President Donald Trump extended waivers of economic sanctions on Iran for another 120 days but said he was doing so “for the last time”.

He gave a four-month deadline to congress and US European allies to address what he called the “disastrous flaws” of the deal.
