Saeed Khatibzadeh warned American media outlets against spreading false reports about Iran.
“Washington Times should know better than to publish #FakeNews & spread anti-Iran bigotry -even though it has featured PAID content by the outlaw MeK terrorist cult. Your readers deserve better!,” he added.
“Cowardice in assassinating foreign leaders is a US-Israeli trademark; NOT Iranian,” Khatibzadeh tweeted.
Meanwhile, Alireza Moezzi, the deputy chief of staff of the President’s Office for communications and information affairs, said the Iranian president would never do such a thing as threatening the life of a foreign dignitary.
“It is beneath the dignity of Iranian president to threaten the life of a foreign counterpart,” he said in a tweet.
“Unlike US regime, Iran does not threaten, nor does it assassinate foreign leaders,” he added.
“President Rouhani clearly said ‘very soon Mr.Trump’s POLITICAL life will be over,” he tweeted.
In a recent report, Washington Times falsely quoted President Rouhani as saying President Trump will soon be dead.
However, Rouhani had said that Trump’s “political life” will soon end.
