The Government of Iran has affirmed that former US President Donald Trump and his Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, “are relegated to the dustbin of History” after the end of their Administration and the inauguration of the new president, Joe Biden.
“Trump, Pompeo and company are relegated to the garbage dump of History in a dishonorable way,” said Iranian Foreign Minister Mohamad Yavad Zarif, who has expressed his wish that “the new colleagues in Washington have learned.”
Thus, it has stated that “the memory of (the former head of the Quds Force of the Revolutionary Guard Qasem) Soleimani and the thousands of murdered, wounded and dead due to lack of food and medicine due to State terrorism and crimes against Humanity Trump will continue to shine. “
Zarif’s words come a day after Iranian President Hasan Rohani branded Trump a “stupid terrorist” and said that Biden’s “ball is in the court” to return to the 2015 nuclear deal and improve bilateral relations. .
Tensions between Washington and Tehran have risen since the United States withdrew from the 2015 nuclear deal in 2018 and rebounded in January 2020 after the US military killed Soleimani in a bombing raid in Iraq.
Iran has announced to date the withdrawal of its commitments on several of the points of the nuclear agreement in response to the decision of the United States, which has caused fear in the rest of the signatories of a possible collapse of the pact.
Despite this, the Iranian authorities have expressed the hope that Biden – Barack Obama’s vice president at the time of the signing of the nuclear agreement – can promote Washington’s return to the pact and the withdrawal of sanctions, considered by Tehran as an essential condition for full compliance with the clauses on your part.
