Iran’s envoy to UN: Those hoping to bring Iran to its knees ‘now gone’

Iran's Ambassador to the United Nations Majid Takht-Ravanchi referred to Donald Trump’s failed ‘maximum pressure’ policy, saying that the era of those who wanted to make Iran give in to their wishes is over.

"Those who boasted about a "maximum pressure" policy hoping to bring Iran to its knees are now gone," Takht-Ravanchi tweeted late on Wednesday referring to the end of the term in office of US former president.

He added, “Iran’s reality can't be ignored, & all attempts to undermine it have failed. So, will the new US admin learn from past US hostility, ignorance & failure? Time will tell.”

The tenure of former US President Donald Trump ended as Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States on Wednesday.

The new president marked the official start to an administration that must now turn its attention to the turmoil and deep divisions caused by hawkish Donald Trump in different arenas, Mehr News Agency wrote.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif also reacted to the end of Donald Trump’s tenure as the US president, saying that he and his administration have been thrown into the dustbin of the history in disgrace.

“Trump, Pompeo & Co. are relegated to the dustbin of history in disgrace,” Zarif tweeted late on Wednesday.

 “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,” he added referring to the cowardly assassination of Iran’s anti-terror hero Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani who was targeted by US drone attack directly ordered by Trump.

The top diplomat underlined that “perhaps new folks in DC have learned” from the grave experiences of the former lame-duck president.

Also commenting on Trumps departure from the White House, the daughter of top Iranian anti-terror commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani described Trump as a “defeated, broken and isolated” former president.

Zeinab Soleimani wrote on her Twitter account on Wednesday that Trump ordered the assassination of her father to portray himself as “a hero,” but assassination of General Soleimani will continue to haunt Trump, and he will live “in fear of foes.”

“Mr. Trump, you murdered my father, the General who led the victorious war against ISIS/Al-Qaeda, with the perverse hope that you will be seen as some sort of hero

“But instead you are defeated, isolated & broken - viewed not as a hero, but one who lives in fear of foes,” She said.
