(Persia Digest) – Deputy of the Iranian President’s PR Office has said: “Trump’s claim of last minute cancelation of strike on Iran due to the number of people who would have been killed is not true.”

Deputy Parviz Esmaeili posted a message on a social media account, saying: “Even if the meeting at the White House was about a military strike against Iran, the outcome would have been discussed and Trump’s claim of a last minute cancelation to prevent a large number of deaths is not accurate. It seems the objections of US allies and undeniable documents on the US drone violating Iranian airspace have also reached him”
