'Unimpressed' Zarif Dismisses Trump Threat

Donald Trump

Two days after delivering an all-caps warning that Iran would suffer historic "consequences" for threatening the United States, President Trump on Tuesday tamped down his hawkish rhetoric and signaled he's ready to make a "real deal" on Tehran's nuclear program.

Tensions between the USA and Iran have been at an all-time high in recent days after President Trump wrote an explosive tweet on Monday directed at Iran.

The suggestion, which did not mention the strategic Strait of Hormuz, was in reaction to looming USA sanctions and efforts by the Trump administration to prevent countries from purchasing Iranian oil.

Within hours, Iran's state-owned news agency IRNA dismissed Mr Trump's tweet, describing it as a "passive reaction" to Mr Rouhani's remarks. S. out of the global deal meant to prevent Tehran from developing a nuclear weapon and ordered increased American sanctions. Some Iranians blamed the threat from Iran for causing the rials collapse, while others attributed the fall to Trumps tweet. "BE CAUTIOUS!" Zarif wrote on Twitter.

"America should know that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace, and war with Iran is the mother of all wars", Rouhani said while addressing a gathering of Iranian diplomats.

US Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said that "if anybody's inciting anything, look no further than to Iran". "That would be a determination that the President would make.But the ultimate goal and the focus of the President is making sure we keep nuclear weapons out of their hands and that we focus on the protection of America", she said.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu commended Trump's "tough stand" against Iran.

Zarif is not the only state official to have chimed in on the Twitter feud. "And the United States under President Trump will not stay silent either".

"Over the years, this regime has been spoiled by the major powers and it is good to see that the USA is changing this unacceptable equation".

Bill Hemmer pushed back, asking if Trump should be "passive" toward Iran, as American leaders have for decades.

"Let's hope these tough stances will get Iran thinking correctly that taking the US on is a bad move", Avella said.

Pompeo said the Iranian government resembled a "mafia".
