‘Never threaten an Iranian!’ Zarif fires back at Trump

TEHRAN, May 20 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has suggested that US President Trump ‘try respect’ when dealing with Iran instead of throwing threats of economic terrorism and genocidal taunts.

In a tweet on Monday, Zarif wrote that goaded by ‘B-Team’ – comprising US National Security Adviser John Bolton, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan – US President Trump “hopes to achieve what Alexander, Genghis & other aggressors failed to do.”

Zarif went on to stress that “Iranians have stood tall for millennia while aggressors [are] all gone.”

He also maintained that “economic terrorism” and “genocidal taunts" will not “end Iran”, in response to Trump’s earlier tweet that "If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran.”

Zarif also warned Trump to ‘never threaten an Iranian’, inviting him instead to “try respect – it works!”
