Zarif: Saudis, Daesh, Trump back violence in Iran

Tehran, Jan 5, IRNA - Iran's foreign minister in a tweet on Friday said 'eternal bedfellows' Saudi Arabia and the terrorist group Daesh are supporting violent unrests in Iran under the leadership of the US President Donald Trump.

'Breaking: Eternal bedfellows #KSA and #ISIS — following Trump's lead — all endorse violence, death and destruction in Iran. Why are we not surprised,' Zarif wrote on his twitter account.

Zarif's tweet comes hours ahead of an meeting at the UN Security Council which is to be held upon the US request on Iran's recent unrests. An earlier bid this week by the US mission in UN was rejected.

During the recent protests in Iran, that began with criticism of economic hardships and evolved into violent riots due to foreign interventions, the US officials, including Trump, rushed to provoke the protesters by tweeting, commenting in media and asking for UN Security Council meeting.

Iran in a letter to the United Nations' Secretary General Antonio Guterres and the chair-state of Security Council has protested to the US meddling in its internal affairs.
