The Foreign Minister of Iran, Mohammad Javad Zarif condemned the threat of US President Donald Trump to Iran.
Zarif wrote on Twitter, “Iranians have stood tall for millennia while aggressors all gone. Economic terrorism and genocidal taunts won’t ‘end Iran’.
“Never threaten an Iranian. Try respect — it works!” he added.
The comments by Iran’s top diplomat follow an ominous warning by Trump, who on Sunday suggested the Islamic republic would be destroyed if it attacked US interests.
