MOSCOW, January 10. /TASS/. The United States causes chaos, repression and resentment wherever it interferes, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote on Twitter on Thursday.
"Whenever, wherever US interferes, chaos, repression and resentment follow. The day Iran mimics US clients and [State Secretary] Pompeo's ‘human rights models’ - be it the Shah or current butchers - to become a ‘normal’ country is the day hell freezes over. Best for the US to just get over loss of Iran," the tweet reads.
Earlier on Thursday, US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo lashed out at Tehran while delivering a speech at the American University in Cairo. He particularly vowed that the US would use diplomatic means to "expel every last Iranian boot" from Syria, adding that Washington would not participate in Syria’s reconstruction as long as forces controlled by Iran remained in the country. Pompeo also said that Israel had the right to defend itself against the Iranian regime.
