Iran FM: Iran’s history older than certain countries
Tehran, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said in response to US President Donald Trump's threatening tweet that such threats are of no significance for the Iranians as they have been hearing such words for 40 years.
Such words are not important to us and the world has heard even more severe talks over the past months, he said.
Although Iranians are a civilized nation, they have heard such thing over the past 40 years, he said.
We have lived for millennia and seen collapse of empires including our own whose lifespan was longer than those of some countries. Be cautious!, Zarif said.
In reaction to President Rouhani's warnings, Trump wrote in his tweeter account on Monday morning that never, ever threaten the US again or you will suffer consequences the likes of which few throughout history ever suffered before.
Rouhani had said that the Americans should realize well that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace and war with it mother of all wars.
Rouhani also told the conference of heads of Iranian representative offices abroad held in Tehran on Sunday that the US final plot is to exhaust the Iranian nation, stressing that the Iranian nation is a master and will never bow to anybody.
