US foreign policy after milking S Arabia of $480 bn: Zarif

TEHRAN, May 22 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif slammed US President Donald Trump's claims against Iran in his visit to Saudi Arabia.

"Fresh from real elections— attacked by @POTUS [president of the US] in that bastion of democracy & moderation. Foreign Policy or simply milking KSA of $480B?," he wrote in his twitter post on Sunday.

Zarif was responding to remarks made by Trump during his first stop overseas as president, in which the US president called on all nations to work towards isolating Iran. He further accused Tehran of stoking the fires of sectarian conflict and terror during a meeting of more than 50 Arab and Muslim leaders.

Donald Trump visited Saudi Arabia as his first destination of foreign tour, where he sealed a $110 billion arms deal effective immediately and set to reach to $350 billion over 10 years, as well as a series of other deals.
