Iran’s foreign minister warns the US that his country will not remain passive while Israel threatens to destroy it.
He also dismisses the Trump administration’s as-yet unpublished peace plan as a “crime against the Middle East.”
“Netanyahu is threatening to destroy Iran. It can’t be that someone threatens our people without a response,” Zarif said at a press conference in Tehran alongside visiting German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas.
America, Zarif charges, has declared an economic war on Iran by imposing sanctions and last year pulling out of a landmark 2015 nuclear deal.
