Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said US President Donald Trump's government is the worst in American history.
According to him, they didn't think that a government supporting terrorism and dealing with fraud would come to power in the US, which would be worse than all other governments in US history and would create problems for the world, allies, friends and even their own people, Rouhani said on air of Iranian TV channel.
The US unilaterally withdrew from a nuclear deal with Iran in 2018, and re-imposed sanctions against Tehran. Presidential Administration has declared the need to reduce Iranian oil exports to zero and imposed sanctions against violators of the current sanctions regime.
US-Iran relations have further escalated after the death of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani in Iraq in early January as a result of an American special operation. Iran, in its turn, has fired missiles at bases in Iraq, where the US military is located. According to the Pentagon, 34 US troops were injured by shelling.
