Iran threatens Trump with WORLD WAR 3 as it vows solidarity with Turkey over lira

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif warned Mr Trump that the “entire world would unite” and use “force” the US to scrap fresh sanctions imposed as a result of a spat over a detained American pastor and Turkey’s defiance to buy oil from Iran.

Mr Zarif - in true Trump fashion - took to Twitter to condemn the new sanctions in a chilling threat.

He said: “Trump's jubilation in inflicting economic hardship on its NATO ally Turkey is shameful.

“The U.S. has to rehabilitate its addiction to sanctions & bullying or entire world will unite - beyond verbal condemnations - to force it to.”

Turkish Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hami Aksoy said yesterday that the sanctions, which disregard World Trade Organisation rules, “cannot be associated with seriousness expected from a state”.

He added: “All the steps taken against Turkey will be given a befitting response as they have been given before.”
