Foreign Minister of Iran, Mohammad Javad Zarif, warned US President Trump to not threaten the country with ‘genocidal taunts’
President Trump had tweeted on Sunday, “If Iran wants to fight, that will be the official end of Iran.”
This led to a war of words with Mr Zarif’s tweet – “Iranians have stood tall for millennia while aggressors all gone… Never threaten an Iranian. Try respect – it works!”
Apparently, the US has moved to position additional warships to the Gulf in the recent days.
Parallel to this, Iran’s media has reported that the country expanded its production of low-enriched uranium fourfold.
