Iranian president comments on US threats
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said there’s no need to respond to US President Donald Trump’s "empty threats."
Rouhani’s remarks were his first since Trump warned the Iranian leader of dire consequences for threatening the United States.
Rouhani said there are “baseless comments and empty threats” by "some U.S. leaders."
"There is no need for us to respond to any nonsensical comment and answer back to them," AFP cited the Iranian president as saying.
"We should respond to them with action," he stressed.
Rouhani added Iran’s "strongest response to their cheap comments" would be “indifference to their plots and choosing to resist and foil their schemes.”
Trump tweeted Sunday if Iran threatened the U.S., it would "suffer consequences."
