In an interview with Fox News, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif suggested that some members of the U.S. administration, along with Israel, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, "have all shown an interest in and dragging the U.S. into a conflict. I do not believe President Trump wants to do that". He also posited that "engagement is not producing results in Iran. President Trump has made sure that the people of Iran would not believe in engagement... that's a very bad message not only that you are sending to the people of Iran, but you're sending to the rest of the world". Zarif also gave a separate interview to CBS.
