Iranian Speaker’s Advisor: Iran Not Intimidated by Trump’s Threats


Advisor to the Iranian Parliament Speaker Hossein Amir Abdollahian underlined that the people of Iran will not be intimidated by the rhetoric and threats of US President Donald Trump.

“Mr. Trump! We will never allow you to target our national security, defensive power and constructive regional influence through threatening to violate, change or break JCPOA; we will take Iran to the heights of economic development through innovation and hard work,” Amir Abdollahian wrote on his Twitter account on Thursday.

He reiterated that Iran will not allow the US to target its national security, defensive power or constructive regional influence.

In relevant remarks last Friday, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif blasted the US president’s reluctant announcement on Iran’s nuclear sanctions waiver, and called Donald Trump’s move as a “desperate attempt” to undermine a “non-negotiable” international deal.

“Trump’s policy and today’s announcement amount to desperate attempts to undermine a solid multilateral agreement, maliciously violating its paragraphs 26, 28 and 29,” Zarif wrote on his Twitter page in reaction to Trump’s stance against the nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

The Iranian foreign minister reiterated that the JCPOA is not renegotiable, and said, “Rather than repeating the tired rhetoric, the US must bring itself into full compliance, just like Iran.”
