Britain told Iran not to underestimate the resolve of the United States, warning that if American interests were attacked then the administration of Trump would retaliate. “I would say to the Iranians: Do not underestimate the resolve on the US side,” Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt told reporters on the sidelines of the World Health Assembly in Geneva. “They don’t want a war with Iran. But if American interests are attacked, they will retaliate. And that is something that the Iranians needs to think about very, very carefully.”
A bomb attack resulted in the killing and wounding of five farmers in the Iraqi province of Nineveh. The incident took place in the district of Tal Afar, western Mosul, where a bomb exploded on an agricultural field. The attack left two farmers dead and three more injured, accusing the (ISIS) militants of planting the bomb.
Huawei has endured a tenuous relationship with the United States for a decade, reaching a boiling point when the Trump administration banned American corporations from doing business with the Chinese company. Although the United States has long suspected Huawei of engaging in illegal activity, it’s not clear that Huawei did anything specific recently to become the object of such concern. The ban came as something of a surprise to observers.
