A senior Russian diplomat has blamed the U.S. for rising tensions in the Persian Gulf, and suggested that war is increasingly likely following months of deteriorating relations.

Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov told reporters Thursday that the diplomatic standoff between Washington and Tehran threatens to boil over into armed conflict, state news agency Tass reported.

"The situation is very alarming," Ryabkov said. "We can see that, in fact, the risk of a direct conflict has risen to such an extent that it is getting harder to predict future developments," he added.
