FM: Iran 'unmoved' by threats from abroad

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Feb 3, IRNA -- Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad-Javad Zarif, said in reaction to US President, Donald Trump, that Iran is unmoved by threats from abroad because it derives security from its own people.

'Iran unmoved by threats as we derive security from our people. We'll never initiate war, but we can only rely on our own means of defense,' Zarif said on his Tweeter account released on Friday.

"We will never use our weapons against anyone, except in self-defense. Let us see if any of those who complain can make the same statement, " Iranian foreign minister said in another message.

The US president, who suffers distrust in the media, is playing a blame game after widespread protests against its recent visa ban order, which blocks the entry of citizens of Muslim countries, including Iran to the US territory.

In reaction to Iran's missile test, Trump said in a recent twitter message that Iran was 'playing with fire,' adding that he would not be as 'kind' to Tehran as his predecessor, Barack Obama.
