Iran security chief labels Trump a liar

Iran security chief labels Trump a liar

Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani described US President Donald Trump as a “liar,” saying that Washington continues to support terrorism in Iraq and Syria and then Trump calls Iran a “terrorist nation.”

“Unfortunately, Trump is a liar. The US imposes sanctions on Iran, supports the growth of terrorism in Iraq and Syria, and bombards Yemen,” Shamkhani told euronews.

“When Trump calls Iran a ‘terrorist nation,’ or distorts the 2,500-year history of the ‘Persian Gulf’ by calling it the “Arabian Gulf,” people realize that they are being targeted,” said Shamkhani.

We asked about the role of Europe since the nuclear deal was struck.

“It has always been our plan to develop our ties and relations with Europe within our values and beliefs. However, the truth is that Europe has not done likewise since the nuclear deal was signed. With a few exceptions, it has mainly paid lip service. It is now saying that it is against the elimination of the nuclear deal by the US,” Shamkhani added.
