Media: US is preparing a strike against Iran's nuclear facilities

The Australian and British military can help the Americans determine the exact goals, but will not take part in the strike.

In turn, Prime Minister of Australia Malcolm Turnbull said that he has no reason to believe that the US is preparing for a war with Iran, according to RIA. "news". "I saw today the story on ABC, which refers to high-ranking Australian sources. This is speculation, it is based on anonymous sources", – noted Turnbull.

Relations between the United States and Iran seriously deteriorated in the spring when the US unilaterally withdrew from the agreement on Iran’s nuclear program and resumed sanctions against this country.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani called on the United States "do not play with fire", warning that Washington will regret it. In response, US President Donald Trump said that if Iran continues to threaten, it will face "unprecedented consequences".
