Trump incapable of obliterating Iran unless he plans to use 'prohibited weapons': Zarif

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says unless it resorts to using “prohibited weapons,” the United States is not in any position to “obliterate” Iran as President Donald Trump has recently threatened.

Facing immense pressure at home for his inability to respond in kind to Iran’s downing of an intruding US spy drone last week, Trump said in a Twitter rant on Tuesday that Tehran will be met with “obliteration” if it ever attacks “anything American.”

Speaking to CNN on Wednesday, Zarif downplayed Trump’s remarks and said Washington was “incapable” of acting on such threats.

“He’s certainly wrong,” Zarif said. “But that statement indicates that the United States’ intentions are certainly illegal.”
