(Persia Digest) – Quds Force Commander, Major General Qasem Soleimani, met FM Zarif at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for talks on Tuesday morning.
At the meeting, Major General Qasem Soleimani said the sanction against FM Zarif was an act of madness and a definite defeat of the WH, adding: “The US action in sanctioning you has proven that you as an official in charge of foreign policy have a profound effect on public opinion, especially on how Americans view the ignorance of their leaders.”
Major General Soleimani commended Zarif’s defense of the national interests of Iran by saying: “You must be congratulated for being the subject of US wrath due to your affiliation to the Supreme Leader.”
Hassan Rouhani also went to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs today to meet FM Zarif.
After the US placed Zarif on its list of sanctions, the move was condemned by the Iranian government, military, and government officials.
The United States sanctioned Zarif last week on the pretext that he is Iran's top spokesperson and obeys the orders of Iran's Supreme Leader.
