Allegations, threats and profanity will never intimidate Iranians: Zarif

Iranian foreign minister has condemned US President’s latest speech against Iran as “inane”, stressing that using threats against the Islamic Republic will prove to be ineffective, ISNA reported.

“Allegations, threats and profanity will never intimidate Iranians. Trump will eventually discover this; as every predecessor did,” Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted after US President Donald Trump officially announced on Friday that he would not certify Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), with world powers.

“Everyone knew Trump’s friendship was for sale to the highest bidder. We now know that his geography is too,” Zarif added, referring to Trump’s using of the "A.r.a.b.i.a.n Gulf” instead of the Persian Gulf in his speech.

“No wonder supporters of Trump’s inane Iran speech are those bastions of democracy in the Persian Gulf: KSA, UAE and Bahrain,” he noted.

“For the definition of rogue, compare Trump’s words with President Rouhani’s response,” the senior Iranian diplomat continued.
