CORRECTED-Iran's Zarif questions U.S. coalition for "peaceful resolution" in Middle East

(Corrects year in second paragraph to 2015 from 1915)

DUBAI, Sept 20 (Reuters) - Iran’s foreign minister on Friday questioned the United States’ plans for a coalition for “peaceful resolution” in the Middle East while listing repeated Iranian diplomatic initiatives.

“Coalition for Peaceful Resolution?,” Mohammad Javad Zarif said in a statement on Twitter, and listed eight diplomatic initiatives by Iran since 1985, including a peace plan for Yemen in 2015, and a regional non-aggression pact for the Gulf region proposed earlier this year.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Thursday the United States was seeking to build a “coalition aimed at achieving peace and a peaceful resolution”. (Reporting by Dubai newsroom; editing by Christian Schmollinger)
