Iran’s Zarif lashes out at US for destroying region

IRNA – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a message condemned the US for supporting dictators and destroying the region.

‘Iranians—including our Jewish compatriots—are commemorating 40 yrs of progress despite US pressure, just as @realDonaldTrump again makes accusations against us @ #SOTU2019,’ Zarif tweeted on Wednesday.

‘US hostility has led it to support dictators, butchers & extremists, who’ve only brought ruin to our region,’ he added.

The US President Donald Trump in a recent tweet claimed that his country has imposed the toughest sanctions against Iran and accused Iran of threatening genocide against the Jewish people.

This is while, the Rabbi of the Jewish Community of Tehran Younes Hamami Lalehzar earlier said that since many years ago, tolerance and living in peace have been the characteristics of the Iranian nation, so Iran can be the best model for the peaceful coexistence of followers of religions and people of the world.

He added that the new viewpoint that emerged after the Islamic Revolution, based on the ideas of Imam Khomeini was based on the cooperation of the followers of different religions.
