FM Zarif: B-Team targeting Iranians with economic terrorism

IRNA – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a message accused US National Security Advisor John R. Bolton and the B-Team of targeting Iranian people with ‘economic terrorism’.

‘While @AmbJohnBolton and the #B_Team say the Iranian people ‘deserve better’, they’ve admitted to targeting them with #EconomicTerrorism—and even war— in a delusional pursuit of ‘regime-change’,’ Zarif wrote in his Twitter account on Sunday.

‘But will @realDonaldTrump let them realize their dreams of another #ForeverWar?,’ he added.

Earlier, elaborating on why he mentioned Team-B, including John R. Bolton, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman and Bin Zayed, he said that he wanted to make Americans informed of a reality which is based on documents not threat and accusation.

He added that there is a group which has so far been responsible for Mr. Trump’s dangerous policies.

Meanwhile, earlier in an interview with the US media ‘CBS’, Zarif said, ‘We do not want conflict, we do not want confrontation, but we haven’t survived 7,000 years by escaping. We resist, but we are not seeking confrontation. We don’t believe that President Trump wants confrontation. But, we know that there are people who are pushing for one.’

He noted: ‘US administration is putting things in place for accidents to happen. And there has to be extreme vigilance, so that people who are planning this type of accident would not have their way.’
