Minister of Foreign Affairs of Iran Mohammad Javad Zarif has commented on US President Donald Trump’s statement that Iran is preparing “secret attacks” against US troops in Iraq.

“Don’t be misled by usual warmongers, again, Donald Trump. Iran has FRIENDS: No one can have MILLIONS of “proxies”. Unlike the US —which surreptitiously lies, cheats and assassinates —Iran only acts in self-defense. Openly Iran starts no wars, but teaches lessons to those who do,” Zarif tweeted.
