Trump abruptly calls off military strikes against Iran

Iran says it shot down a USA surveillance drone over its airspace while the US says it was in worldwide airspace, he noted, "but who are you going to believe, Iran or the US government? - is a question that used to be really easy to answer".

Earlier, the United Airlines in a statement had said that "given current events in Iran, United Airlines has conducted a thorough safety and security review of our India service through Iranian airspace and made a decision to suspend service between New York/Newark and India (Mumbai) beginning today evening".

During an appearance on Friday's "The Hugh Hewitt Show", Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) sounded off on the rising tensions with Iran after the country shot down a USA drone in worldwide waters.

On Thursday, two other carriers, American Airlines and Delta Air Lines, also did not fly over Iran.

"In his message, Trump said he was against any war with Iran and wanted to talk to Tehran about various issues".

The letter , dated June 17 but made public today, points out that all the iPhone maker's core products are manufactured in China. One option can be to maneuver their manufacturing out of China, which Apple is reportedly exploring.

In particular, US House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said on Thursday the US must undertake a "measured response" to Iran.

The US said the drone was in global airspace.

Earlier in the day, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said that debris from the United States drone was located in Iranian territorial waters. "Iran can NEVER have Nuclear Weapons, not against the U.S., and not against the WORLD!" It was also not clear whether the attacks might still go forward.

President Donald Trump initially warned that America would not stand for such action by Iran, but he later reportedly canceled military action.

Zarif stressed that Washington continues to wage "economic terrorism" against the Islamic republic.
