US: Iranian Drones Will 'Continue to Be Shot Down'

Friday, 19 July 2019 10:44 AM

The United States will destroy any Iranian drones that fly too closely to its ships and has "clear evidence" that it shot down such a drone on Thursday, a senior Trump administration official said on Friday.

"If they fly too close to our ships, they’ll continue to be shot down," the official told reporters at a briefing.

The official also said the Trump administration wants to hear directly from Iranian President Hassan Rouhani or Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s supreme leader, about whether the Islamic Republic is interested in negotiations.
