Iran PressIran News: Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote in a Twitter message in response to the crackdown on popular protests in the US city of Portland: “All options on the table" has long been a staple of US foreign policy. It simply means the law of the jungle; disregard for a fundamental principle of international law: Non-Use of Force. Now, the Trump regime is using the same threat against Americans. A wake-up call? God willing.

"All options, including sending federal forces to end the recent Portland protests, are on the table," Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf told ABC on Sunday.

The city of Portland has become the center of US anti-racist protests in the last three months after George Floyd was killed by police.

And now the city is the scene of clashes between supporters and opponents of US President Donald Trump.

One killed in clashes between Trump supporters and opponents in Portland and local officials are refusing to disclose the exact number of people injured in the recent protests.

Portland governor imposes curfew following a crackdown on anti-racist protests, and the people of this city cannot be on the streets from seven in the morning until seven at night.
