Iran warns US against using language of threat against Tehran

Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian speaks to his Syrian counterpart on July 2, 2022 in Damascus, Syria. LOUAI BESHARA AFP TEHRAN - Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian warned on Saturday that Washington should not use the language of threat against the Islamic republic.

Amir-Abdollahian said that history should have taught the United States that the language of threat against Iran and Iranians achieves nothing.

He said that the United States will not allow the United States to evade responsibility for the thousands of Iranian and other victims of its involvement in terrorist crimes in our region because of its fitile attempts at deflection.

The foreign minister's remarks came after the US Justice Department announced criminal charges against a member of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps for allegedly planning the assassination of former US national security advisor John Bolton.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry dismissed the accusations on Thursday.
