Iran's foreign minister is calling Tuesday night's ballistic missile attack on Iraqi bases housing U.S. troops ``proportionate measures in self-defense.''

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has also tweeted, ``'We do not seek escalation or war, but will defend ourselves against any aggression.'' His tweet follows the missile attack in retaliation for the killing of Iranian Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleimani in a U.S. drone strike last week in Baghdad.
