GENEVA (Reuters) - The United States is trying to create “Iran phobia”, Iran’s defence minister Amir Hatami said on Friday, according to the Iranian Labour News Agency (ILNA).

“Very complicated and suspicious conditions exist in the region,” he was quoted as saying. “It seems that all of this is in line with an overall policy for creating Iran phobia and creating a consensus against the Islamic Republic.”
