TDN World Desk: Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javed Zarif hit out at US for denying him visa to attend UN meet.

Taking to Twitter Zarif said on Tuesday,Denying me a visa in violation of 1947 UNHQ Agreement pales in comparison to Pompeo’s threat to starve Iranians (crime against humanity) and Trump’s bluster about cultural heritage (war crime)”.

“They fear that someone comes to the US and reveals realities,” Zarif was quoted by Al Jazeera.

Tensions escalated between Iran and US as after Friday’s airstrike that killed top Iranian General Quasem Soleimani in Baghdad, Iraq.
