TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif described US President Donald Trump’s speech at the UN General Assembly in New York as “ignorant hate speech”, noting that his address was not worth of a reply.

“Trump's ignorant hate speech belongs in medieval times-not the 21st Century UN -unworthy of a reply. Fake empathy for Iranians fools no one,” Zarif said in a message posted on his official Twitter account on Tuesday evening.

The Iranian minister was responding to Trump’s anti-Iran rhetoric during his speech in New York.

Zarif further said that Trump’s “hollow” and “derogatory” remarks are not worth replying to.  

Expressing ignorant remarks against Iran and turning a blind eye to the realties about the country’s effective role against terrorism in the region reveal the depth of his naivety and demagogic attempts, he noted.

"Such behaviors along with other realities like the US support for the criminal Zionist regime and other regional dictatorial regimes as well as its support for terrorist groups would not yield any result but further isolation and disrepute for the US administration in the world,” Zarif added.

During his address, Trump claimed that Iran's "support for terror is in stark contrast to the recent commitments of many of its neighbors to fight terrorism and halt its financing". 

The US and some of its regional allies, including Saudi Arabia, have been staunch supporters of Takfiri terrorists in the Muslim states of Syria and Iraq.

Tehran has, meanwhile, been praised for its support for anti-terrorism efforts by the governments in Damascus and Baghdad.

The Takfiri terrorists of Daesh were initially trained by the CIA in Jordan in 2012 to destabilize the Syrian government.
