ANKARA (Reuters) – Iran’s foreign minister on Thursday rejected Donald Trump’s condolences for deadly attacks in Tehran, calling the U.S. president’s words repugnant.
Trump had said he prayed for the victims of Wednesday’s attacks that were claimed by Islamic State, but added that “states that sponsor terrorism risk falling victim to the evil they promote.”
Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote on his Twitter account: “Repugnant White House statement…. Iranian people reject such U.S. claims of friendship.”
