Washington does not expect the Iranian attacks on their positions, said in an interview with CBS News Pentagon chief mark Esper.

“We do not expect any attacks in the future,” said Esper.

He noted that the government in Iran is legitimate, and therefore the American leadership is ready to meet with Iran without preconditions.

“It’s still the legitimate government of Iran. And as we talked, I told the President certainly said that we’ll meet them. We are ready to sit down and discuss, without preconditions, the way forward, a series of steps by which Iran will become a more normal country,” – said the head of the Pentagon.
