Dubai: Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif slammed the United States on Wednesday for ordering new sanctions on Iran despite the departure of "warmonger-in-chief", US National Security Advisor John Bolton.
"As the world ... was breathing a sigh of relief over ouster of #B_Team's henchman in the White House, (Washington) declared further escalation of #EconomicTerrorism (sanctions) against Iran," Zarif tweeted. "Thirst for war —maximum pressure— should go with the warmonger-in-chief (Bolton)."
