  • Iran condemns Israeli regime's official remarks

Iran’s foreign ministry has strongly condemned comments made by the Israeli regime’s president Reuven Rivlin against Iran.

Iran PressIran news : The foreign ministry spokesman, Bahram Ghasemi said it is a great shame that the leaders of the regime call the brave and cultured people of Iran using such insulting language.

According to Al-Alam News Network ,the ministry’s spokesman added, Tehran warns the fascist leaders of the Zionist regime over such insults.

The mean, rude, and evil Zionist leaders, who used to pretend they made a distinction between the people of Iran, and the Iranian government as part of their deception, sham, hypocrisy and propagandist policies, have now lost control of their words, and with a bitter tone and boldness have shamelessly insulted the Iranian people openly to reveal their wicked anti-Iran nature, the foreign ministry spokesperson added.

He went on to say that the Israelis also showed how they are opposed to the existence of Iran and Iranians and how they are burning in an implacable and endless hatred.

In further comments, Ghasemi  said: “More disrespectfully, the leaders of the regime, whose brutality, aggression, meanness, deception, and cunning are no secret to anyone, call the ancient, brave and cultured nation of Iran, who saved the Jewish people, with such words claiming that the Iranians must be starved and not fed.”

He further noted that the great and cultured people of Iran respect the status and the rights of the followers of the religion of Prophet Moses (PBUH).

Iranians believe the Jewish people are different from these fascist, aggressive and unbridled minorities who are ruling the occupied territories, pointed out Ghasemi.

“We warn these self-centered racists, who are deprived of wisdom and politeness, about the consequences of making such indecent and thoughtless remarks against the Iranian nation,” he added.

During remarks on Thursday, the Israeli president, whose role in government is largely ceremonial said, "From our point of view, now is the time to join the effective sanctions on Iran and not to circumvent them."

"The Iranian beast must be starved and not fed. This is the only way to guarantee the stability of the world," Rivlin added.

The Israeli president, who recently received German Chancellor Angela Merkel, also urged Germany to join US sanctions on Iran after Washington unilaterally withdrew from a 2015 nuclear deal Iran signed with the P5+1 group of countries which is still supported by Europe as well as China and Russia.

US President Donald Trump announced in May that Washington was pulling out of the nuclear agreement, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which lifted nuclear-related sanctions against Tehran in exchange for restrictions on Tehran's nuclear program. The deal had been signed between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council -- the United States, Britain, France, Russia and China -- plus Germany in 2015.
