(Persia Digest) – The Iranian Foreign Minister, Javad Zarif, has criticized US behavior by saying: “The rogue US Administration is destabilizing the international system with its inability to uphold accords in good faith.”
Zarif posted a string of tweets on Thursday morning criticizing US actions and policies, as follows: “It is unfortunate to see a US Administration with destructive unilateralism in its DNA abuse a multilateral forum to attack multilateralism. The US is so devoid of credibility it’s been forced to hide behind procedure in order to avoid facing Iran at the Security Council.”
Persia Digest reports that the UN Security Council met on Wednesday morning local time in a session headed by Donald Trump to discuss the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD). Trump continued its accusations against Iran, but did not extend an invitation to Iran to attend the meeting.
In his second tweet on Thursday morning, Zarif wrote: “Indeed — with a heavy dose of empathy, or even pity — one might almost understand why this US Administration would need cheap distractions to obfuscate its commitment to destabilization. For all can see its deeply troubling behavior at home, and deeply malign activities abroad.”
A third tweet by the FM said: “To grasp this rogue US Administration’s commitment to destabilizing the international system, one need only recall its Ambassador to the UN’s crude threat to ‘take names’; Mr. Trump's threats to cut funding; or his National Security Adviser’s threat to prosecute ICC judges.”
In his fourth post, Zarif tweeted: “Given this US Administration's demonstrated inability to uphold accords in good faith, 1st step toward attempt at conflict resolution must be for it to take concrete measures aimed at regaining semblance of qualification & eligibility. E.g. it must begin to act as a normal state.”

And last but not least, Iran’s top diplomat tweeted: “Iran will keep working with its partners to create new environment in which self-respecting nations can pursue own interests & int'l obligations. We will continue to work to offset unlawful US sanctions & irrevocably eliminate destabilizing phenomenon of US extraterritorial laws.”
