Blaming Iran won't end disaster - Zarif to Pompeo

Politics A- A A+

"Blaming Iran won't end disaster," said Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in reaction to US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's accusing of Iran of having been behind the Yemeni drone attacks on Saudi oil facilities, Mehr News reports.

"Having failed at 'max pressure', @SecPompeo's turning to 'max deceit'," wrote Zarif in a tweet on Sunday. 

"US & its clients are stuck in Yemen because of illusion that weapon superiority will lead to military victory," Zarif added, referring to the Saudi-led Western-backed military aggression against Yemen, which has killed tens of thousands of Yemenis, destroyed the country’s infrastructure and led to a massive humanitarian crisis since March 2015.

Zarif went on to add, "Blaming Iran won't end disaster. Accepting our April '15 proposal to end war & begin talks may."
