Following President Trump's words yesterday and reports that he has "made his decision" on what to do about the Iran nuclear deal, Iranian President Rouhani just responded to "rogue newcomer" Trump, speaking at The United Nations, and also did not pull any punches...
As he spoke, his words were transcribed into a Tweetstorm...
We never threaten anyone and we do not tolerate threats from anyone. Unmoved by intimidation our discourse is one of dignity &respect.
Historically backing the oppressed Iran upholds the right of the Palestinian people as it did those of the Jewish people centuries ago.
Iran does not seek to restore its ancient empire; impose its official religion on others; or export its revolution with force of arms.
We opened our doors to engagement & cooperation. Missing this opportunity, some imposed sanctions on themselves and now feel betrayed.
It's disgraceful that the Zionist regime not committed to any intl instrument or safeguard has the audacity to preach peaceful nations.
Iran won't be the first country to violate the agreement but it will respond decisively and resolutely to its violation by any party.
Destruction of #JCPOA by "rogue" newcomers to the world of politics will never impede Iran’s course of progress and advancement.
By violating its international commitments, the new U.S. administration only destroys its own credibility for future negotiations.
Iran's defense capacities are only deterrent. Target of Saddam's ballistic missiles we won't be victim of irrational aspirants again.
Iran has continuously and vociferously rejected nuclear weapons.
Ugly, ignorant words were spoken by the US president against the Iranian nation. Full or hatred & baseless allegations and unfit for UN.
Now we anxiously await Trump's tweeted response...
