Iran's foreign minister on Thursday rejected Donald Trump's condolences for deadly attacks in Tehran, calling the U.S. president's words repugnant.
Trump had said he prayed for the victims of Wednesday's attacks that were claimed by Daesh, but added that "states that sponsor terrorism risk falling victim to the evil they promote."
Zarif in a tweet on Thursday called the comments on the attack in Tehran a day earlier "repugnant" and accused the U.S. of supporting terror.
"Repugnant White House statement .... Iranian people reject such U.S. claims of friendship."
President Donald Trump in a statement suggested that Iran bears some culpability for attacks in its capital.
Trump tweeted that "states that sponsor terrorism risk falling victim to the evil they promote." He also said the U.S. was grieving and praying for the victims of the attacks.
