FM: Trump Showing Ignorance towards Iran, Region Again

Share
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif blasted US President Donald Trump’s allegations made against Iran, and called on Washington to reconsider its approach towards the Middle East.

“Trump again confirms his ignorance of Iran & region. Everyone knows where he stands; and it’s certainly not with Iranians. His ‘virtuous’, ‘democratically-elected’ clients in our region may cheer, but not those on receiving end of their tyranny & weapons, incl [including] the Yemeni children,” Zarif wrote in a Twitter message released on Wednesday.

In a relevant Twitter message earlier, the Iranian foreign minister had reacted to the US administration’s against Iran concerning arming the popular forces of Yemen.

“A while ago the US showed a Saudi-supplied Iranian missile intact. They must’ve been told a missile destroyed by a Patriot does not land fully assembled. So now the US shows UNSC missile fragments w/[with] Iranian Standard Institute logo, as on our foodstuffs. Try fabricating ‘evidence’ again,” Zarif said.

“The ISIRI [Institute of Standards and Industrial Research of Iran] seal is a measure of quality for Iranian consumer goods. But sadly for Trump & Co, we don’t put it on missile parts,” he added.

The Iranian foreign minister reiterated that its time for some to do a better job of fabricating.

The US envoy to UN Nikki Haley on Dec 14, 2017 appeared standing before what she claimed was debris of an Iranian-origin missile shipped to Yemen and then fired to Saudi Arabia.
