The high ranking Iranian commander’s remarks came in reaction to Trump’s UN speech on Tuesday, during which he claimed Iran is engaging in “destabilizing activities” in the region.
“What was new is that the US revealed its true face to the world,” he said, adding, “Today, the world can see the same image of the United States that Iran has been trying to reveal it for many years.”
“In fact, these allegations against Iran, perfectly match the US and its corrupt and bullying government,” the commander added.
He then asked the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, who is in New York for UN General Assembly meeting, to “show strong, revolutionary and revealing stance” in his speech at the UN.
Pointing to the US consecutive failures in the region, Jafari said such “nervous reaction deems natural” given the consecutive and crushing failures that the US has experienced in the region.
He further underlined that the US will receive "much painful" response from Iran due to action, behavior, and decisions that Tehran would take in coming months.
Trump claimed during his first address to the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly on Tuesday that Iran's "support for terror is in stark contrast to the recent commitments of many of its neighbors to fight terrorism and halt its financing".
The remarks came as the US and some of its regional allies, including Saudi Arabia, have been staunch supporters of Takfiri terrorists in the Muslim states of Syria and Iraq.
Tehran has, meanwhile, been praised for its support for anti-terrorism efforts by the governments in Damascus and Baghdad.
Meanwhile, Secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani reacted to Trump’s remarks about the nuclear agreement between Tehran and the P5+1 group of countries – known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
During his UN speech, Trump denounced the nuclear agreement with Iran as “an embarrassment” that the US may abandon.
He said the Iran deal was “one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into.” Shamkhani said Trump’s remarks betrayed his ignorance of international agreements and their legal nature.
“No signatory to the JCPOA can balk at the accepted mechanisms of this international agreement under false or illegal pretexts,” he said.
