TEHRAN (Iran News) – Iran’s ambassador to the Republic of Azerbaijan reminded the US president of the futility of threatening Iran during the last days of his tenure at the White House.
In a post on his Twitter account, Seyed Abbas Mousavi said, “If I were Mr. Trump, I DID NOT threaten a peace-loving but warrior NATION, Iran, in my last days in 1600 Penn.”
It came after Trump earlier this week went on expletive-ridden rant while once again threatening Iran.
Last month, the spokesperson for the Iranian administration dismissed falsified reports to which the US president has referred to threaten Iran with military action, cautioning Washington that any mistake would draw Iran’s appropriate response.
Iranian military and political officials have repeatedly warned the enemies about the dire consequences of a military action against the Islamic Republic.
In comments in April 2018, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said the US is aware of the crushing response it will have to face in case of taking military action against Iran.
The era of hit and run is now over, and the US knows that if it gets entangled in military action against Iran, it will receive much harsher blows, Ayatollah Khamenei underlined.
The US is seeking a way to evade the costs of standing against Iran and place them on regional countries, the Leader said, reminding certain regional countries that if they confront Iran, “they will definitely suffer blows and defeat”.
