Mattis to Iran: Don't Even Think About Taking Us On

"It is Americans who instigate them and provide them with the necessary means to commit these crimes", Rouhani said of the attackers.

When asked whether that meant Trump would be willing to sit down with Iran's ayatollah, Pompeo replied, "The president said he'll talk with anyone if we can have a constructive conversation".

"We also contend that the risk of such a destabilizing clash will only grow as Iran comes to feel the full effects of economic sanctions that are created to radically alter the behavior of the ruling regime, if not change it", the analysts said. "And I am hopeful that cooler, wiser heads will prevail".

An Iranian media outlet close to the country's hard-line Revolutionary Guard published a video Tuesday threatening the capitals of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates with missile attacks, further raising regional tensions after a weekend militant attack on a military parade in Iran.

Iran's Armed Forces staged the countrywide military parades to mark the Sacred Defense Week on the 38th anniversary of the onset of the Iraqi imposed war on the Islamic Republic back in the 1980s.

'You have seen our revenge before. But that remark came a week after Trump and Rouhani traded threats, and Iran's leadership replied by saying the time for talks was before, not after, Trump withdrew the USA from the Iran nuclear deal.

"Iran's security, military intelligence apparatuses would let go".

While Iranian officials attempt to blame outsiders for the attack, some analysts believe the attack could be a backlash of Iran's oppression against religious and ethnic minorities in the country.

A commodity expert has warned the deadly attack could also lead to an increase in oil prices, with relations soaring between rival states in the region.

Gunmen dressed in military uniform opened fire on marching soldiers, bystanders, and government officials, who had gathered to watch the parade on Saturday. Iranian leaders blamed the US and Israel and threatened retaliation.

But it is unlikely the IRGC will strike any of these foes directly.

USA officials condemned Saturday's terror attack in Iran, but rejected allegations the US was behind it.

Karim Dahimi, a human rights activist in London, told Reuters local sources had said more than 300 people had been arrested in the cities of Ahvaz, Khorramshahr and Abadan in recent days, mostly from the Sunni Muslim community.
