    The #B_Team Strikes again. .@realDonaldTrump: With a BFF in the #B_Team — who empties US coffers and takes US foreign policy hostage — SPYING on the US PRESIDENT, America doesn't need enemies.

    As the world—minus ۳ or ۲ panicked cohorts—was breathing a sigh of relief over ouster of #B_Team's henchman in the White House, Pompeo & Mnuchin declared further escalation of #EconomicTerrorism against Iran. Thirst for war—maximum pressure—should go with the warmonger-in-chief.

    Do you even know what CIVILIZED means, @SecPompeo? Is it sending drones over weddings to kill innocents? Piracy on the high seas? Maybe it’s pouring lethal weapons into a region to enable inhuman wars? Or, is it a millennia-old nation that hasn’t attacked anyone for centuries?

    #OFAC is nothing more than a JAIL WARDEN: Ask for reprieve (waiver), get thrown in solitary for the audacity. Ask again and you might end up in the gallows The only way to mitigate US #EconomicTerrorism (sanctions) is to decide to finally free yourself from the hangman’s noose.

    ۶۶ years ago today, a coup instigated by the US and the UK overthrew the democratically-elected Government of Iran. This atrocity followed years of «maximum pressure» on Iranians. Our people put an end to such interference in ۱۹۷۹. Time for some to deal with this reality.

    US' proliferation of arms in our region is menace to regional security. Last year Iran—with ~۱M men under arms—spent $۱۶B on its ENTIRE military. Saudi Arabia spent ۵X that JUST on arms. Overflowing armories don’t win peace—or even war. Regional cooperation brings REAL security

    Persian Gulf is vital lifeline and thus nat'l security priority for Iran, which has long ensured maritime security. Mindful of this reality, any extra-regional presence is by definition source of insecurity - despite propaganda. Iran won't hesitate to safeguard its security.

    ۷۴ yrs after US became first & ONLY regime to deploy a nuclear weapon—on a city, designed to maximize casualties—it is STILL targeting civilians. This time, with #EconomicTerrorism, violating a historic nuclear deal & punishing those who seek to adhere to it. #hiroshima

    I also said that while @realdonaldtrump may want photo op, the US isn't interested in talks; rather, Iran's submission. That will never happen. An example of US tactics: Threatening to designate somebody in two weeks unless he accepts your invitation to chat in the Oval Office.

    1398/05/11 ساعت 18:53

    The US has imposed additional «punishments» on Russia, in its serial bouts of #EconomicTerrorism. It appears that @SecPompeo's paranoia about «Great Powers» is becoming a true phobia. Wake up: The era of «Great Powers» is long past.

  • جواد ظریف   JZarif@

    1398/06/24 ساعت 13:40

    Having failed at «max pressure», @SecPompeo's turning to «max deceit» US & its clients are stuck in Yemen because of illusion that weapon superiority will lead to military victory. Blaming Iran won't end disaster. Accepting our April '۱۵ proposal to end war & begin talks may.

    FIGHTING TO THE LAST US SOLDIER Same #B_Team which a) provided most ۹/۱۱ terrorists & b) pushed the US into the Afghan/Iraq quagmires is now plotting war thru #EconomicTerrorism on Iranians who held a candlelight vigil as WTC was on fire No wonder ۹/۱۱ still haunts @SecPompeo.

  • جواد ظریف   JZarif@

    1398/06/19 ساعت 16:17

    Did you know, @realdonaldtrump, that Netanyahu was also instrumental in pushing the US into the Afghanistan quagmire? The same one that you now cannot get out of? His motto since ۱۹۸۶: Fight to the last American soldier. Just watch this clip:

  • جواد ظریف   JZarif@

    1398/06/17 ساعت 20:34

    Gravely concerned about Afghanistan: Defeated foreigners must leave and fratricide must end; especially as foreigners can exploit the situation, bringing renewed bloodshed. Iran prepared to work with Afghan govt and parties—as well as neighbors—to forge lasting end to violence.

  • جواد ظریف   JZarif@

    1398/06/16 ساعت 16:27

    What exactly is EXTORTION, @SecPompeo? Is it violating a UN resolution & punishing anyone observing it? Offering bribes for theft of oil & designating those who refuse? Maybe it’s demanding Iran's submission or its people starve? Or, Is it lawful remedial measures under JCPOA?
