President Donald Trump says the US is ready to embrace peace “with all those who seek peace”.
Trump said this in a nationwide broadcast after the claim of Iran that 80 American soldiers had been killed in retaliation for the killing of Qasem Soleimani, an Iranian general.
But in his speech, Trump dismissed the claim of Iran, saying no American was hurt in the missiles fired by Iran.
“To the people and leaders of Iran, we want you to have a future and a great future, one that you deserve,” Trump said.
“One of prosperity at home and harmony with the nations of the world. The United States is ready to embrace peace with all who seek it.”
The US president also announced fresh sanctions on Iran, saying the sanctions will be in place until “Iran changes its behaviour”.
