Tuesday on “Charlie Rose,” Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the Iranian people, not just the supreme leader, do not trust America because historically we toppled a government before.
Zarif said, “We want to enjoy the benefits of interaction but we insist on our dignity.”
He continued, “The Iranian public, it’s not just the supreme leader, the Iranian public, the general public are very skeptical of U.S. intentions. This is unfortunate but a reality. The reality is that the general public in Iran are very mindful of history. Very much so. They remember the United States overthrowing a government and supporting a suppressive regime.”
