Iran blames Trump for global security threats

Tension between Iran and America may rise to another high after Tehran blamed US President Donald Trump’s “arbitrary and conflicting policies” for the rise in global security threats.

Iran also rejected the U.S. president’s description of Tehran as a rogue state with tempers flaring since the election of Trump, who has often singled out the Asian country as a key backer of militant groups.“(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,” said foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi, quoted by Iran’s state news agency IRNA.

The comments by Tehran is coming after Trump said on Thursday that new threats were emerging from “rogue regimes like North Korea, Iran and Syria and the governments that finance and support them”.
