Iran, Aug. 10, 2019 - In another episode of in-fighting among Iranian regime officials, Hossein Shariatmadari, the de facto spokesperson of Iranian regime supreme leader Ali Khamenei in Keyhan daily, attacked regime President Hassan Rouhani and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.
"You had promised that you would uphold the dignity of the [Iranian regime] passport, but today, when your foreign minister goes to UN headquarters in New York, he's only allowed to move in an 800-square-meter area, and the U.S. has passed the law to prohibit traveling to Iran," Shariatmadari wrote.
His remarks come on the heels of new U.S. sanctions against Zarif because of his role in perpetrating crimes and orders of Khamenei.
Regarding Rouhani's recent remarks during his visit to Zarif's office, Shariatmadari said, "As always, in his speech, he commended the nuclear deal without actually pointing out to any of its achievements."
He then reminded Rouhani, "You had pledged that, in addition to keeping the centrifuges spinning, you would start spinning the wheels of the livelihoods of the people. But in practice, both of these have stopped from turning. You had said that you would dismantle the sanctions, but not only they weren't dismantled, but dozens of other sanctions were added to them."
While rivaling factions in the regime regularly blame each other and the U.S. for the country's economic woes, as far as the people are concerned, the regime in its entirety is responsible for the corrupt and bankrupt economy of the country. In their ongoing protests, the people regularly chant, "Reformists, hardliners, the game is over," stressing that the only solution for Iran is the overthrow of the entire mullahs' regime.
