DOHA: Iran s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif accused the United States on Monday of transforming the Gulf into a tinderbox with its arms sales to regional allies. The US (sold) $50 billion worth of weapons to the region last year. Some of the countries in the region with less than a third of our population spend $87 billion on military procurement, Zarif told Qatar s Al Jazeera broadcaster during a visit to the Gulf state.Washington is pursuing a maximum pressure campaign designed to force Iran to limit its nuclear and military activities.
