Zarif reacts to end of Trump era: Relegated to history dustbin

Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif reacted to the departure of Donald Trump and his team from the White House by saying they were consigned to the dustbin of history in disgrace.

"Trump, Pompeo & Co. are relegated to the dustbin of history in disgrace,” Zarif wrote in a tweet on Wednesday.

He further said that world will never forget crimes against humanity made by the 45th president of the United States and his administration, including the cowardly assassination of Iran’s anti-terror hero Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani who was targeted by US drone attack directly ordered by Trump.

“But the memories of Gen Soleimani & the 1000s murdered, maimed & starved of food & meds by Trump's state—& economic—terrorism & crimes against humanity, will shine on.

“Perhaps new folks in DC have learned," Zarif said referring to the US newly-sworn in President Joe Biden and his team who officially took office on Wednesday.

Earlier in the day, spokesman of the Foreign Ministry Saeed Khatibzadeh also tweeted, "The DIPLOMATIC VANDALISM of Trump, Pompeo & co stemmed partly from a faulty institutional process. But that same process- when “functional”- produced disasters like wars in Iraq, Afghanistan & Vietnam.

“The world knows that only the US can fix itself – in practice; not in words.”

 Joe Biden has taken the oath of office as the 46th president of the United States in a ceremony that was unlike any other in the American history, Press TV repoted.

The ceremony was held at the Capitol on Wednesday under strict and heightened security in the wake of the violent and deadly breach of the Capitol by the supporters of the outgoing President Donald Trump.

President Biden pledged to "repair our alliances and engage with the world once again."
