Trump Administration Destabilizes Global Peace: Iran’s Zarif

Trump Administration Destabilizes  Global Peace: Iran’s Zarif

GENEVA - Iran’s foreign minister tweeted on Friday that the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump was a threat to the Middle East and to the global community.
“It is true that there is a real threat to our region and to international peace and security: that threat is the Trump administration’s sense of entitlement to destabilize the world along with rogue accomplices in our region,” Mohammad Javad Zarif said. “The U.S. must start acting like a normal state.”
Tensions have ramped up between Iran and the United States after Trump withdrew from a landmark multi-lateral nuclear deal in May and reimposed sanctions on the Islamic Republic last month.
Separately, Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Friday that Iran has not requested a meeting with Trump, according to the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).
A foreign news agency reported that Iran requested such a meeting during the United Nations General Assembly which began this week, citing U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, according to IRNA. (Reuters)
