Obama's not afraid of Iran's attack
U.S. President Barack Obama sees no reason to fear that Iran may attack the United States, RIA Novosti reported.
"We have no reason to believe that now Iran has such intentions or capabilities", Obama said in the air of TV channel NBC.
He added that according to Washington, the Iranian nuclear issue should be resolved by diplomatic means, without the use of military force, the Interfax reported.
"Any additional activity in the Persian Gulf would be devastating and would have a big impact on us. It would also have a large impact on the oil prices. Our troops are still in Afghanistan, bordering Iran. Therefore, we prefer a diplomatic way to resolve the issue", President of the United States said.
"The United States will do its utmost to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons and thus causing arms race - nuclear arms - in the volatile region", Obama said.
Speaking of Israel's plans to attack Iran, he said: "I do not think that Israel has already decided to do this. I think that Israel, like us, believes that Iran may give up its nuclear weapons program".
