RNA - In a post on his Twitter account on Friday, Zarif cited Trump's interview with Bloomberg News last August, during which he claimed that his policies may lead to the collapse of the Iranian government.
The top Iranian diplomat compared Trump’s remarks to the comments made by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who told a meeting of NATO foreign ministers on Thursday that the US-led military alliance should get united in the face of "great power" challenges from Iran, Russia and China.
Flip-flop par excellence: one day US claims Iran on verge of collapse, the next we’re demonized as a "Great Power" that threatens NATO. @SecPompeo & his boss will make any contradictory claim that fits an occasion. In contrast, Iran is consistently responsible & peace-seeking. pic.twitter.com/iabgkxAoqG

Zarif also stressed that despite "contradictory" statements made by the US officials, Iran has always been a "responsible and peace seeking" nation.
Earlier in mid-February, Zarif lashed out at US President Donald Trump for his hostile policies against Tehran, reminding that 40 years of American moves against the Islamic Revolution have brought Washington nothing but failure.
