Zarif warns US about any fireworks to backfire badly

– Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif warned US President Donald Trump against playing with fire, and said that any fireworks will backfire badly.

“New intelligence from Iraq indicate that Israeli agent-provocateurs are plotting attacks against Americans—putting an outgoing Trump in a bind with a fake casus belli,” Zarif wrote.

“Be careful of a trap, @realDonaldTrump,” he added.

“Any fireworks will backfire badly, particularly against your same BFFs.”

Earlier on Thursday, Zarif had written in a Twitter message, “Instead of fighting Covid in US, @realDonaldTrump & cohorts waste billions to fly B52s & send armadas to OUR region.”

"Intelligence from Iraq indicate plot to FABRICATE pretext for war,” the top Iranian diplomat warned.

“Iran doesn't seek war, but will OPENLY & DIRECTLY defend its people, security & vital interests.”
