Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif stressed that people like US President Donald Trump can't hurt the defense, resistance and glory of the Iranian people.

During the meeting with Iranian residents in South Africa, Zarif said, "Those who put pressure on Iran have become a lesson in history and Iranian nation is present stronger and more powerful than the first day".

"These days we hear inappropriate whispers by some newcomers in the arena of politics, it must be recalled once again that the Islamic Republic of Iran has managed in the last 40 years to overcome all corruptions, sanctions, wars and violations," he added.

Zarif also put a relevant post on his Twitter account on Monday, in which he reiterated Iran's policy to meet its interests through positive collaboration with regional states.

"Unlike the U.S.-which sees regional conflict in its interest to sell more arms-we desire more dialog with and between all our neighbors," he wrote on his twitter account.
