Zarif condemns US-led anti-Iran gathering in Poland
The Iranian Foreign Minister has slammed the upcoming international summit on the Middle East, set to be held in Poland in February, calling it an 'anti-Iran circus'.
Iran Press/Iran news: Mohammad Javad Zarif in a memo posted on Twitter on Friday said: "Reminder to host/participants of anti-Iran conference: those who attended last US anti-Iran show are either dead, disgraced or marginalized. And Iran is stronger than ever."
"Polish Govt [government] can't wash the shame: while Iran saved Poles in WWII [World War II], it now hosts desperate anti-Iran circus," Zarif posted on Twitter, according to Iran Press.
