Iran “committed an extremely huge error” in shooting down a US military reconnaissance ramble over the Strait of Hormuz, President Donald Trump says.
In any case, he told journalists it could have been the aftereffect of human blunder, saying: “I think that its difficult to trust it was purposeful.”
Iran said the automaton had disregarded Iranian airspace, however the US military denied this.
The occurrence comes in the midst of heightening pressure between the two nations.
Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said Iran would take its protest that the US “infringes on our region” to the UN.
“We don’t look for war however will energetically safeguard our skies, land and waters,” he said on Twitter.
What did Trump say?
Talking at the White House, he considered the automaton’s bringing down “another fly in the treatment”.
Mr Trump said it was “reported” that the unmanned automaton had been over universal waters and not in Iranian airspace.
“I think most likely Iran committed an error – I would envision it was a general or someone that committed an error in shooting that automaton down,” he said.
“It could have been someone who was free and idiotic,” he included.
