Mohammed Javad Zarif accuses PM of spreading ‘bigoted lies’ by saying that modern Iran, like ancient Persia, is bent on annihilating the Jewish people.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif on Sunday accused Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of distorting history by repeatedly saying that modern Iran, like ancient Persia, was bent on annihilating the Jewish people.
