B-Team despises diplomacy, thirsts for war: FM Zarif


Tehran (ISNA) – Iran’s Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif emphasized that B-Team is not concerned with US interests; they despise diplomacy, and thirst for war.

He made the remarks in a tweet posted on his official Twitter account reacting to US President Donald Trump’s recent tweet.

“DonaldTrump is 100% right that the US military has no business in the Persian Gulf. Removal of its forces is fully in line with interests of US and the world. But it's now clear that the #B_Team is not concerned with US interests—they despise diplomacy, and thirst for war,” Zarif tweeted.

Trump wrote on his official Twitter account, “China gets 91% of its Oil from the Straight, Japan 62%, & many other countries likewise. So why are we protecting the shipping lanes for other countries (many years) for zero compensation. All of these countries should be protecting their own ships on what has always been a dangerous journey. We don’t even need to be there in that the U.S. has just become (by far) the largest producer of Energy anywhere in the world! The U.S. request for Iran is very simple - No Nuclear Weapons and No Further Sponsoring of Terror!”
