Sending his condolences to the victims of the latest terror attacks in Iran, President Donald Trump issued a statement on Wednesday from the White House. However, it was in the conclusion of his statement that he stunningly rebuked the government of Iran.
“We grieve and pray for the innocent victims of the terrorist attacks in Iran,” the statement read, “and for the Iranian people, who are going through such challenging times.”
“We underscore the risks that states that sponsor terrorism risk falling victim to the evil they promote,” it added.
The statement suggests that since Iran has been a state sponsor of terrorism all over the world, according to the US intelligence community, it has been attacked by the terrorists created by itself.
As expected, Iran has blamed Saudi Arabia for the twin attacks last Wednesday, on the shrine of a revered Iranian politician. The attackers used suicide bombs and other arms.
According to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, the attacks could be related to the President Trump’s recent visit to Saudi Arabia.
“World public opinion, especially in Iran, sees the fact that this terrorist act was perpetrated soon after the meeting of the U.S. president with the heads of one of the reactionary regional states that has always supported … terrorists as to be very meaningful,” the statement read.
However, the statement from the White House, following the attacks, is bound to attract more animosity from Iran, the beneficiary of a historic nuclear deal with former President Barack Obama. It should be noted that the deal attracted a great deal of criticism from President Trump.
