The next day, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif struck out at the president’s usage of a “worthless photo to recklessly accuse Iran,” while stating Trump is “far worse” than President George W. Bush, who prompted the 2003 Iraq War with the then-UK Prime Minister Tony Blair.
“Last time, the US ruined our region over weapons of mass destruction fabrications,” he stated, including that Trump would “bear full responsibility for any adventurism” prior to he leaves workplace on January 20 to be changed by Joe Biden.
Tensions in between Iran and the US have actually increase under the Trump administration, which introduced a “maximum pressure” project on the Middle Eastern country, striking it with sanctions for its supposed funding of terrorism– an allegation regularly rejected by Tehran.
