With friends like Netanyahu, America doesn't need enemies: Zarif

With friends like Netanyahu, America doesn't need enemies: Zarif

Tehran (ISNA) - Mentioning recent reports about Israel's spying on the White House, Iranian Foreign Minister said, with friends like Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, America doesn't need enemies.

“The B_Team Strikes again. US President, Donald Trump: With a BFF in the B_Team — who empties US coffers and takes US foreign policy hostage — SPYING on the US PRESIDENT, America doesn't need enemies,” Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote on his official Twitter account.

His tweet included images of a Thursday report by the American political journalism company Politico, in which three informed former senior US officials were quoted as saying that the US government concluded within the past two years that Israeli agents likely planted cell-phone surveillance devices near the White House and several other locations in Washington to spy on Trump.

Following the publication of the report, Trump said he did not believe that and noted his relationship with Israel has been great, highlighting his decision to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and to put pressure on Iran to deter its activities in the Middle East.

The spying devices were found about two years ago, but were not attributed to specific entities, Politico reported.

Israel, in turn, denied the report, calling it a "blatant lie."
