Tehran, May 28, IRNA — Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif reacted to US President Donald Trump’s recent statements during his visit to Japan, and said that actions speak louder than words.

“Ayatollah @Khamenei_ir long ago said we’re not seeking nuclear weapons-by issuing a fatwa (edict) banning them.#B_Team’s #Economic Terrorism is hurting the Iranian people & causing tension in the region. Actions-not words-will show whether or not that’s @realDonaldTrump’s intent,” Zarif wrote on his Twitter account late on Monday.

Zarif’s remarks came in reaction to Trump’s latest remarks on Iran who said his administration is not looking for regime change in Iran and would rather sit down for talks, signaling a change of tone after a period of saber-rattling that saw him and other US officials threaten Tehran with war while vainly hoping that they might get concessions.
