#Iran's leader, in a ۲.۵ hr long meeting with heads of ۳ government branches, asked them to divide the problems in the country into ۲ parts of «Internal & structural challenges of Iran's economy» & «issues resulting from #US sanctions», & then to find «wise solutions» to them.
#Iran's leader: The enemy wants to make Iranian people think that there is no choice but to yield to the #US. Those [inside the country] who are contributing to this are betrayers. I will not let this happen as far I can & I am alive.
#Iran's leader: I heard that the #US president has told some #European leaders that they need to wait ۲ or ۳ months & [the establishment in] Iran will be overthrown. This reminds of the words ۴۰ yrs ago. The hungry cat dreams of mice.
#Iran's IRGC, on early Monday morning, fired ۶ ballistic missiles at east of Euphrates in #Syria to target the leaders of the terrorist group that conducted #Ahvaz terrorist attack, #IRGC public relations announced.
#Iran MFA spox: There lies a reality in what Mr #Pompeo said [in UANI session] & mentioned in his report, & that is the disappointment of American officials with fulfilling their dream of isolating Iran in global stage.
#Iran’s president: We owe two thanks to #UNSC. One on their statement about #Ahvaz terrorist attack, & the other was the support announced by leaders on #JCPOA. #Trump was isolated when he withdrew from #IranDeal & now once more in #UN when other officials supported the deal.
#Iran’s president: On the question of any likely meeting between Iran FM & #US Secretary of State, that depends on the behavior of the #US … Mr Zarif met US State Secretary in the past, with Tillerson … They need to come back to the agreement.
#Iran’s president: We are not alone. #US is alone. It was alone test in the #UNGA & today in the Security Council. All supported the #JCPOA. Americans are stranger in the region & have come from a far distance.
#Iran’s President: The words of Secretary Pompeo do not fit in a logical framework … Why is US in Iraq that they might face problems in staying in the country? #Trump himself said that this (presence in Iraq) is not useful. US is also in #Syria in violation of international law.
#Iran’s president on likely new #US sanctions against Iran: There have been no sanctions left that they may want to impose against us. Some have been proactive prior to this [in imposing sanctions against Iran].
#Iran's leader: We will punish the elements behind #Ahvaz terrorist attack harshly … According to reports, the coward act was done by the people whose hands are in the #Saudi & #UAE pockets & American save them (terrorists) when they get stuck in #Syria & #Iraq.
Terrorists, after opening fire at #IRGC military parade in #Ahvaz, southwest of #Iran, have escaped. Security forces are after the terrorists. State TV reported that the gunmen are «Takfiri terrorists».
No attack against #Iran’s embassy in #Ankara. The embassy has not been evacuated & it is operating as usual. Turkish police has increased security measures in the area around the embassy seemingly due to some threats: source in Iran’s embassy.-Tasnim
«#DonaldTrump is the best gift the world could ever give to the Islamic Republic of #Iran: unfamiliar with the world of politics, immature in decision making, killer of international cooperation, good at own goal, and abandoning every int’l treaty, agreement, accord & promise.»
International Court of Justice issues interim order to the #US to lift #Iran sanctions linked to humanitarian aids, food, medicine, & #civil aviation. US needs to grant licenses & necessary authorizations for the payment & other transfers of those goods & services.
#Iran’s president: It’s a surprise that the rotating president of the #UN Security Council wants that a #UNSC resolution not to be implemented, & even says that it will punish those who respect the resolution.
#Iran’s president: What we want is the #US act according to the laws & put aside bullying. If they respect law, we will have no problem. We have also some problems that need to be resolved at their own time.
#Iran’s Intelligence Ministry announced that identity of the terrorists of #Ahvaz attack & their foreign supporters have been identified & ۲۲ elements who supported the terrorists have been detained. Arms & explosives have been discovered at the residence of terrorists.
#UK interim charge d’affairs in #Tehran, in the absence of Ambassador, was summoned by #Iran MFA to tell him it’s unacceptable that a London-based media gave a platform to the spokesperson of terrorist group al-Ahvazi to claim responsibility of #Ahvaz terrorist attack: MFA spox.
