Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif condemned US President Donald Trump as “a terrorist” over his recent move to call Iranians “a nation of terror” and said the Islamic Republic will see the end of Trump’s era.
In reaction to remarks by Trump against Iran made during an address to the US farmers yesterday calling Iran ‘a nation of terror’, the top Iranian diplomat said that “only Donald Trump deserves the label of terrorist.”
“Trump showed with his recent remarks that he neither knows history, nor does he know the Iranian nation,” Zarif reporters at the end his Friday meetings with the high-ranking Pakistani officials.
Trump’s comments showed that his claims on support for the Iranian people were a big lie, Zarif added.
“Mr. Trump, with his own comments, has shown that firstly, he does not know history, and, secondly, he does not know the people of Iran,” Zarif said after his meetings with Pakistani officials in Islamabad on Friday.
“Thirdly, he is proving that claims by him and his colleagues about supporting the Iranian people are nothing but lies,” he added.
“A few days ago, he (Trump) said, ‘Iran will end’; Iran will see his end, but he will never see the end of Iran,” Zarif went on to say.
Speaking to reporters in Washington on Thursday, Trump said, “Iran has been a very dangerous player, a very bad player. They are a nation of terror and we won’t put up with it.”
