United States central command (US CENTCOM) chief general Kenneth McKenzie has said on Saturday Washington would adopt all necessary measures and deploy resources in order to counter possible threats by Iran.

McKenzie, during an official trip to the Gulf region, was quoted by Sky News Arabia as saying, “We’re gonna continue to reach out to our partners and friends in the region to ensure that we make common cause against the threat of Iran.”

According to a released transcript, McKenzie stated, “I believe we’ll have the resources necessary to deter Iran from taking actions that will be dangerous,” adding, “We will be able to respond effectively,” according to Reuters news reports.

Since US President Donald Trump pulled America out of an international nuclear treaty (INF Treaty) last year and initiated imposing sanction on Iran, tensions between Washington and Tehran have risen.

McKenzie also stated he was confident the US is going to have “a long term presence in Iraq, focused on the counter-terror mission.”

Iran has on Wednesday announced the country will pave ways to find foreign buyers and export its crude oil to those nations through the Strait of Hormuz, warning that if the United States tries to block Tehran from doing so then it should “be prepared for the consequences”.
