MNA – “It’s not Iran that wishes to fight to the last American; rather, it is Pompeo’s B-Team hosts who seem to wish to fight Iran to the last American,” Zarif addressed US Secretary of State Pompeo in a tweet on Friday.
Pompeo has it the other way around, Zarif wrote in a tweet on Friday.
“It’s not #Iran that wishes to fight to the last American; rather, it is his #B_Team hosts who seem to wish to fight Iran to the last American,” he added.
“Iran has no desire for war, but we will, and always have, defend our people and our nation,” Iranian FM wrote.
