(Persia Digest) – Iran’s top diplomat tweeted at Trump, emphasizing: “Try respect—it works!”

In response to US President Donald Trump’s recent threat against Iran, Javad Zarif tweeted: “Goaded by B_Team, Donald Trump hopes to achieve what Alexander, Genghis & other aggressors failed to do. Iranians have stood tall for millennia while aggressors all gone. Economic Terrorism & genocidal taunts won't "end Iran". Never Threaten An Iranian. Try respect—it works!”
