“I think that Trump’s threats have been clearly and decisively responded by the Islamic Republic of Iran’s nation and officials. No one can threaten the Iranian nation and take any action,” Araqchi said on Sunday.
Noting that the Iranian government relies on its people’s might and power, he said, “We have proved that we will not make any concessions to any stream and country which threatens us.”
“It is better for Mr. Trump to seriously review the advice given to him and speak wisely,” Araqchi said.
In relevant remarks on Friday, Iran’s First Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri sent a wake-up call to the US President, saying that Trump needs to realize that election campaign season has come to an end and he should now open his eyes to the realities on the ground.
“This Mr. Trump is still in the atmosphere of election, while he is surrounded by groups like the Zionist regime that pursues its own interests through provoking him,” Jahangiri told FNA in Tehran on Friday, speaking on the sidelines of the February 10th rallies marking the 38th anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution.
He also said that Trump is also misled by those politicians who are paid by the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO, also known as the MEK, PMOI and NCRI), an anti-Iran terrorist group that has augmented efforts to open a lobby in Washington in the last decade.
“Yet”, he said, “the US cannot do a damn thing.”
