Zarif criticizes MEMRI accusations

- Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a message slammed Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) over antisemitism accusations against him.

"MEMRI has sunk to a new low in taking my prejorative usage of a word to accuse me of Antisemitism I was ?????????????? the allegation that Iran seeks to "throw the Jews into the sea” and reiterating our solution is a referendum with participation of ALL: Jews, Muslims, Christians," Zarif wrote in his Twitter account on Wednesday.

Zarif made the remarks in reaction to Middle East Media Research Institute's recent tweet in which it accused him, saying: "Iranian FM Zarif: Biden’s U.S. Will Be Obligated to Rejoin JCPOA; the West Failed to Include Iran's Missiles, Regional Role in the JCPOA and Cannot Add Them Now; We Want to Resolve the Problem of Israel by Referendum, Not by Throwing the “Kikes” into the Sea."
