(Persia Digest) – Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesperson had responded to John Bolton’s latest comments, saying: “John Bolton has always shown his deepest contempt for Iran from old times. He has an abnormal behavior and suffer from a chronic “Abuse Iran” syndrome.”
Ghasemi added that no professional, self-respecting career politician speaks in these terms, emphasizing: “Using such an inferior lexicon by this US official who has long-standing relations with certain terrorist groups and receives money from them is not surprising.”
He added: “He speaks about placing unprecedented sanctions and pressures on Iran with great, unorthodox pleasure which is shameful.”
He continued by saying: “Iranian culture, civilization, and long history have always stood the test of time to teach the necessary lessons to loquacious mercenaries and tame rogue, ignorant rebels. Today, the great Iranian nation will stand up to its aggressive, alien enemies once again.”
Persia Digest (PD) reports that John Bolton had recently made hostile statements about Iran, saying “It is our intention to squeeze them very hard. As the British say: Squeeze them until the pips squeak.”
Bolton said: “The new US sanctions have hit Iran’s oil exports and the banking sector’s international transactions. The Iranian government is under great pressure and we intend to make it even more difficult for them.”
