OğuzTV:Friday as the president warned that the country is “playing with fire” in the wake of recent missile tests – and his administration prepares to announce new sanctions.
U.S.A and Iran war takes over twitter
A White House source told Fox News the sanctions will be announced Friday morning.
After his administration put Iran “on notice” earlier this week, Trump fired his latest warning shot on Twitter, writing: “Iran is playing with fire – they don’t appreciate how “kind” President Obama was to them. Not me!”
Zarif swiftly posted a response, saying: “Iran unmoved by threats as we derive security from our people. We’ll never initiate war, but we can only rely on our own means of defense.”
He also said Iran “will never use our weapons against anyone, except in self-defense. Let us see if any of those who complain can make the same statement.”
Trump’s team stepped up its rhetoric against Iran over ballistic missile tests and a recent attack on a Saudi naval vessel by Tehran-backed militants.
Military officials told Fox News that Iran actually has conducted two recent missile tests, one on Dec. 6 and another this past Sunday.
U.N. resolution 2231 calls on the Islamic Republic not to conduct such tests. The resolution bars Iran from conducting ballistic missile tests for eight years and went into effect on July 20, 2015, days after the landmark nuclear deal was agreed to in Vienna.
