Iran Slams Trump’s ‘Arbitrary and Conflicting’ Policies

Iran’s foreign ministry on Saturday said U.S. President Donald Trump’s policies are to blame for emerging global security threats. The comments came after Trump singled Iran out as a “rogue regime” on Thursday, putting the country on par with Syria and North Korea. “(Trump) ought to seek the reason for subversion and rebellion in his own arbitrary and conflicting policies and actions, as well as those of his arrogant, aggressive and occupying allies in the region,” foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said Saturday.
