Iran’s foreign minister fired back at US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s speech in Cairo, Egypt, declaring that hell would freeze over before Iran “mimics US clients.”

“Whenever/wherever US interferes, chaos, repression & resentment follow,” Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted on Thursday, adding that it’s “best for the US to just get over loss of Iran.”

“The day Iran mimics US clients and Secretary Pompeo’s ‘human rights models’ – be it the Shah or current butchers – to become a ‘normal’ country is the day hell freezes over,” Zarif said.

The foreign minister’s remarks come after his US counterpart gave a fiery speech in Egypt on Thursday declaring America a “force for good” in the Middle East. Pompeo praised Washington’s Arab allies for fighting what he called Iran’s “malign” influence in the region.

“The nations of the Middle East will never enjoy security, achieve economic stability, or advance the dreams of its peoples if Iran’s revolutionary regime persists on its current course,” Pompeo said at one point.

ROFL : Iranian Basij recently tortured to death environmentalists who criticised the govt way of fighting the terrible water crisis the country faces… The way they do fight drought? By organising public prayers rallies! Actually the water crisis is due to 2 factors : the incompetence and the mismanagement of the bigots that illegitimately rule the country (remember : Khomeini and his thugs did a coup against the Iranian revolution). Moreover, the Basij is even worst than the Shah’s infamous Savak and the closest entity they could be compared to was nothing else than the Gestapo… Actually, it’s Iranians wholost… Read more »
