MOSCOW, February 15 (Itar-Tass) —— The U.S. administration is not interested in starting a war against Iran, Sergei Rogov , Director of the Institute of the USA and Canada said.
“The U.S. is debating strikes on Iran. Both parties have supporters and opponents of the use of force. I think that the Obama administration does not need this war, especially in the face of the upcoming election and possible oil price rises,” he said on Wednesday, February 15.
“The United States has just pulled out of Iraq and is planning to withdraw from Afghanistan, and it would be quite risky to create an instable situation at a time like this,” Rogov said.
He does not rule out that the conflict between Iran and Israel may escalate. “There is an undeclared war between these states, for example killings of scientists and diplomats or cybercrimes. I think the conflict can enter a new stage involving the use of force this spring or summer,” Rogov said.
