WASHINGTON, June 23 (Reuters) – President Donald Trump told NBC News on Sunday that he did not send a message to Tehran warning Iran of a U.S. attack, which he later called off.

Iranian sources told Reuters that Trump had warned Tehran via Oman that a U.S. attack was imminent, but had said he was against war and wanted talks.

“I did not send that message,” Trump said on NBC’s Meet the Press program.

He said “I’m not looking for war.”
