Zarif calls Trump’s statement on Khashoggi’s death ‘shameful’

TEHRAN, Nov. 20 (MNA) – The Iranain Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has condemned the anti-Iran statement of the US president on the death of Jamal Khashoggi as ‘shameful’.

“Mr. Trump bizarrely devotes the FIRST paragraph of his shameful statement on Saudi atrocities to accuse IRAN of every sort of malfeasance he can think of,” Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted a few hours after the US President Donald Trump said in a statement that the Saudi Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman may have been aware of the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi while stressing that Saudi Arabia would remain a ‘steadfast partner’ of the United States in the fight against Iran.

Zarif also ridiculed Trump’s anti-Iran statement as “perhaps we’re also responsible for the California fires, because we didn’t help rake the forests — just like the Finns do?”
