Iranians commemorating 40 years of progress: Zarif

Iranians commemorating 40 years of progress: Zarif

Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mohammad Javad Zarif responded to US President Donald Trump’s claims during State of the Union Address in US Congress.

“Iranians—including our Jewish compatriots—are commemorating 40 yrs of progress despite US pressure, just as @realDonaldTrump again makes accusations against us @ #SOTU2019. US hostility has led it to support dictators, butchers & extremists, who've only brought ruin to our region,” the top diplomat twitted.

“My administration has acted decisively to confront the world’s leading state sponsor of terror: the radical regime in Iran,” Trump claimed Tuesday night in front of Congress. “To ensure this corrupt dictatorship never acquires nuclear weapons, I withdrew the United States from the disastrous Iran nuclear deal. And last fall, we put in place the toughest sanctions ever imposed on a country.”

In his State of the Union address, Trump also said Iran “chants death to America and threatens genocide against the Jewish people. We must never ignore the vile poison of anti-Semitism or those who spread its venomous creed.”
