Tehran: Hitting back on US president Donald Trump on Twitter, on Monday Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif warned him to “BE CAUTIOUS!”
Maintaining the same aggressiveness as Trump’s, Zarif wrote: “UNIMPRESSED … We’ve been around for millennia & seen fall of empires, incl our own, which lasted more than the life of some countries. BE CAUTIOUS!
It must be recalled that Trump had tweeted on Sunday, with a warning to Iran: “NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE.”
Trump’s tweet was a response to a speech by President Hassan Rouhani warning Trump not to “play with the lion’s tail” and that conflict with Iran would be the “mother of all wars”.
