Zarif blasts Pompeo’s threat to starve Iranians
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has forthrightly condemned US secretary of state Mike Pompeo's threatening remarks against the Iranian people, saying Pompeo will learn, like others before him, that in spite of US efforts, Iran will not just survive but will make steady progress.
#WeWontForget @SecPompeo openly threatening to starve Iranians—a crime against humanity—in a desperate attempt to impose US whims on Iran. Like his predecessors, he'll also learn that—in spite of US efforts—Iran will not just survive but advance w/out sacrificing its sovereignty. pic.twitter.com/GJiN7rI82Q— Javad Zarif (@JZarif) 10 November 2018
Iran news: According to Iran Press, in a Saturday tweet, Zarif wrote, “#WeWontForget @SecPompeo openly threatening to starve Iranians—a crime against humanity—in a desperate attempt to impose US whims on Iran.”
“Like his predecessors, he'll also learn that—in spite of US efforts—Iran will not just survive but advance w/out sacrificing its sovereignty.”
Just as with Yemen, @SecPompeo blames Iran for unlawful US sanctions preventing Iranians’ access to financial services for food and medicine. Naturally, we will provide them for our people in spite of US efforts. But US is accountable for crimes against humanity re Iran & Yemen.— Javad Zarif (@JZarif) 8 November 2018
On November 8, Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in a tweet that secretary of state Mike Pompeo is blaming Iran for unlawful US sanctions, just as he is blaming Yemen for unlawful actions carried out by Saudi Arabia.
"The sanctions imposed on Iran by the US target Iranian people but Iran's government will do its' best to make a proper condition for the people," Iran's foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif noted in an online video on November 6.
"US is very angry because the whole world stands against Washington aggressive policy against Iran," Zarif said.
Iranian Foreign Minister also called on the US to take a long hard look at its' wrong choices and change its' approach from a failed one it has stubbornly followed, instead of prescribing behavioral changes for Iran. 103
