Amid aggravated tensions with Iran, the United States decided to send the Patriot missile defense system to the Middle East. This is reported by the BBC.

"The Arlington warship of the U.S. Navy with amphibians and aircraft on board will also join the Abraham Lincoln strike group in the Persian Gulf," the report said.

In addition, according to the Pentagon, American B-52 bombers arrived at the base in Qatar.

U.S. officials said these steps are a response to a possible threat from Iran to the U.S. forces in the region, without specifying what kind of threat they have in mind.

The Pentagon’s last statement on Friday said only that Washington is “ready to protect U.S. forces and interests in the region,” adding that the United States does not seek conflict with Iran.

Tehran called the deployment of the U.S. Navy a "psychological warfare" aimed at intimidating the country.

Iran also hinted that it would resume nuclear enrichment activities.

We recall that in neighboring Iraq about 5 200 U.S. troops are currently deployed.

Earlier, it became known that Iran refused to negotiate with the United States. It was also reported that Iran waived a number of obligations under the nuclear deal.
