Zarif: Iran’s Security, Stability Depend on Own People
Local Editor

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the Islamic Republic's security and stability depend on its own people, adding that "infiltrators" will not be permitted to violate the rights of the Iranians.

"Iran's security and stability depend on its own people, who - unlike the peoples of [US President Donald] Trumps regional "bffs"-have the right to vote and to protest," Zarif said in a post on his official Twitter account on Tuesday.

He further stressed that the Iranian people would protect their "hard-earned rights" and would never let infiltrators "sabotage them through violence and destruction."

Since Thursday, groups of Iranian protesters have staged demonstrations in several cities to voice their anger over rising prices and economic conditions. Sporadic violence has erupted during the protests, causing a number of casualties.

Trump posted several tweets to express his support for protests in Iran. In his latest tweet on Tuesday, the US president said, "The [Iranian] people have little food, big inflation and no human rights. The US is watching!"

Zarif's tweet came after Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi denounced US President Donald Trump's "insulting" tweets about the recent protests in a number of Iranian cities, urging him to avoid interfering in the Islamic Republic's internal affairs.

"Trump's completely paradoxical and garbled stance against the Iranian people is not a new issue," Qassemi said on Tuesday.

Addressing a Cabinet session on Sunday, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani condemned his American counterpart's comments about the protests in Iran.

"This man who today in America wants to sympathize with our people has forgotten that a few months ago he called the Iranian nation terrorist," the Iranian president said, adding, "This person who is against the Iranian nation from head to toe has no right to feel sorry for the people of Iran."

He said that national security, peace and coherence as well as the unity that existed in Iran were the "biggest assets" of the country in the restive Middle East region, emphasizing that people from all faiths and ethnicities enjoyed peaceful coexistence in the Islamic Republic.
