Iranian FM Mohammad Javad Zarif said Trump’s “trash talk” would not make the smallest dent in the defense, resistance and glory of Iranian people.
Mohammad Javad Zarif, who is currently in Pretoria as the head of a politico-economic delegation, made the remarks on Monday in the company of Iranians residing in South Africa, adding “Iranian immigrants represent the culture of Iran through their integrity, endeavours, and diligence.”
He deemed the Iranian people the only foundation of the country’s progress and security and stated that “the Islamic Republic of Iran can endure all pressures through the support of its people.”
The Iranian official also said the country does not owe its economic progress and security to any other country; “despite all the pressures against Iran, no country in the region enjoys peace and security similar to us,” Zarif said. “Certain countries purchase a great deal of military equipment from outside, but they still lack intrinsic security.”
“It is worth pointing out that within the past 40 years, Iran has overcome the hardship of imposed corruption, sanctions, wars and aggressions with the glorious and robust presence of its people.” He stressed and added “those who tried to challenge Iran, turned into a history lesson, and today, Iranian people stand stronger and more resilient than ever before.”
