(Persia Digest) - The Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has sneered at the US lethal arms sales to its Middle Eastern allies despite the fact they have had American blood on their hands, reports Mehr News.

"Kill 3,000+ Americans but remain a US client and you can have nuclear weapons—even get help in acquiring them. But refuse to bow to #B_Team 's whims, you can't even possess peaceful nuclear energy. It apparently matters not that "Iran is killing ISIS” while US' clients arm it," the top Iranian diplomat has posted on his Twitter account in an apparent reference to Saudi nationals' involvement in 9/11 attacks in New York despite continuation of arms sales to the Kingdom as well as the remarks by the US National Security Advisor John Bolton in which he says nations that chant 'Death to America' and 'Death to Israel' will not be allowed to have, in his words, 'nuclear weapons.'
