  • Iran lambastes Westerners' silence toward George Floyd's murder

Tehran (IP) - Iran's Foreign Minister criticized Western countries' silence toward George Floyd's murder, warning that if the Westerners want to keep their lips sealed now, they should always keep them that way.

Iran Press/Iran News: Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted on Tuesday: "US cities are scenes of brutality against protesters and press, as military crackdown is threatened."

Referring to the silence of Western society toward the recent tragedy in the US against the colored people, Iran's Foreign Minister added: "If it wants to keep lips sealed now, it should always keep them that way."

The protests throughout the US began after a black man named George Floyd died after a police officer arrested him and pressed his knee onto his neck. Floyd died by homicide, according to the results of two autopsies released on Monday one by the county medical examiner and the other by independent pathologists commissioned by Floyd's family.
