US #EconomicTerrorism is a global menace, Zarif wrote on his Twitter account.

I'm in Venezuela to attend #NAM meeting geared to forge global response to unilateralism, he added.

In Iran's engagement with the world, we neither call for the ouster of leaders, nor bolster them�decisions that are for the PEOPLE of a nation, Zarif reiterated.

Zarif arrived in Caracas, the capital city of Venezuela on Saturday to attend NonAligned Movement (NAM) foreign ministers' meeting.
