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 indicates 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.”
