Zarif: Not confident we can avoid war, but Iran won't start one

Zarif said that he and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had to try and push diplomacy, rather than war, as tensions rise between Tehran and Washington.

Zarif told CBS News that he was not confident that the two sides could avoid war, but said that Iran would not be the one to start a war.

He also warned that any war between the U.S. and Iran would not be a "limited" one.
