Zarif to Pompeo: US, not Iran, squandering own people's resources
Iran's top diplomat says the US is squandering the resources of its own nation to push ahead with its policy of adventurism abroad and support "terror-sponsoring regimes," stressing that the American people have had enough of "corruption" and "injustice" at home, Press TV reports.
Mohammad Javad Zarif posted a press statement on his Twitter page on Thursday to hit back at US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo over his latest interventionist comments about recent protests against economic issues in Tehran.
In the statement, Zarif mimicked Pompeo, who sought on Wednesday to take advantage of guild-related protests in Tehran and denounce the Iranian establishment's policies -- a usual practice of the Washington administration.
Drawing attention to the negative impacts of Washington's harmful foreign agenda on the lives of American people, Zarif said, "The US government is squandering its citizens' resources, whether its adventurism in Iraq and Afghanistan, its blind support for Israel and terror-sponsoring regimes, or its wasteful expansion of its nuclear arsenal: it will only add to the suffering of the people of America."
