Zarif: Trump’s Disrespect for Iranians Belies His ’Support’ Claims
Local Editor

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said US President Donald Trump's moves against the Iranian people belie his recent claim that he "supports" them.

In further details, Trump earlier posted a comment on his Twitter account on Wednesday, expressing his "respect" for the Iranians participating in protests in some cities of the country, claiming that the US will provide "great support" to them "at the appropriate time."

Trump's claim came after protesters took to streets in a number of Iranian cities starting last Thursday to show their disgruntlement at rising prices and economic conditions in the country.

The protests soon took a violent turn as rioters, who were later revealed to have been fed by foreign intelligence agencies, entered the scene and caused sporadic violence in some Iranian towns and cities for several days.

For his part, Zarif took to Twitter on Thursday to condemn Trump's claim of support for the Iranian people, saying "Trump has an odd way of showing ‘such respect' for Iranians: from labeling them a ‘terrorist nation' & banning them from visiting the US, to petty insults on the name of the Persian Gulf."

He noted that measures taken by the Trump administration vis-à-vis Iran's nuclear deal with the P5+1 group of countries, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action [JCPOA], and depriving the Iranian people of the deal's economic benefits further belie Trump's claim.

On October 13, 2016, Trump called Iran "a terrorist nation" during a speech on strategic review of US policy on Iran in Washington, just hours before he was expected to say Iran was not complying with the JCPOA.
