The former Iranian president said on Monday that talk of US contingency planning for a military attack on Iran were overblown because such a move would be too dangerous.
"Reports about plans for an American attack on Iran are incorrect. We are certain that Americans will not attack Iran because the consequences would be too dangerous," former president Hashemi Rafsanjani said in an appearance in the Kuwait parliament.
Rafsanjani also said he was certain that Arab countries in the Persian Gulf would not help the United States should it decide to use force.
"We are certain that Gulf countries will not help the United States to attack Iran," Rafsanjani, said.
