Iran’s Foreign Minister Called Trump’s Response To The Attack “Repugnant”

TeleSur English     Posted Thurs., June 08, 2017

In a brief, two sentence official White House statement released Wednesday about the attack earlier that day that killed 17 people in Iran, President Donald Trump said the  nation was reaping the consequences of its actions, prompting Iran to denounce the United States President’s response as “repugnant.”

President Trump said in the statement that while “we grieve and pray for the innocent victims of the terrorist attacks in Iran”, nonetheless “we underscore that states that sponsor terrorism risk falling victim to the evil they promote.”

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, tweeted in response: “Repugnant WH (White House) statement and Senate sanctions as Iranians counter terror backed by US clients.”

The U.S. senate opened up the floor for debate to move forward with a new round of sanctions on Iran on Wednesday, only hours after the attack. Democratic Senator Chris Coons saw the proposed sanctions bill as an “opportunity” to “amend it to include strong Russia sanctions.”

The attack on Tehran’s parliamentary complex, and the shrine of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini which took place Wednesday, killed 17 people, and wounded over 40 others. The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

“Terror-sponsoring despots threaten to bring the fight to our homeland. Proxies attack what their masters despise most: the seat of democracy,” Zarif said in another tweet.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards have accused Saudi Arabia and the U.S of colluding to support the action, releasing a statement that said “this terrorist attack happened only a week after the meeting between the U.S. President (Donald Trump), and the (Saudi) backward leaders who support terrorists. The fact that Islamic State has claimed responsibility proves that they were involved in the brutal attack.”

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
