Trump continues tweet attacks on Iran, Zarif reacts (VIDEO)
Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb. 3
By Emil Ilgar – Trend:
US President Donald Trump has continued tweet attacks on Iran since Feb. 2.
“Iran is playing with fire – they don't appreciate how "kind" President Obama was to them. Not me!,” Trump tweeted Feb. 3.
He also harshly criticized on Feb. 2 the nuclear deal that was reached between Iran and the world powers in 2015, adding that the accord has prevented the “collapse” of the Islamic Republic.
The officials from Iran and the US over the past couple of days have exchanged sharp criticism amid reports on the Islamic Republic’s recent missile tests.
Iran in response has said it will not allow foreigners to interfere in its missile activities as “they follow strictly defensive purposes.”
Iran and the world powers in 2015 reached a historic deal on the country's nuclear program removing sanctions on the Islamic Republic in exchange for curbing the country's nuclear program.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif reacted to Trump’s tweets Feb. 3, tweeting, “Iran [is] unmoved by threats as we derive security from our people. We'll never initiate war, but we can only rely on our own means of defense.”
