“The United States, which has been interfering for decades in elections in other countries like Iran, has no right to make such ridiculous statements,” said Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh.
He added, “As for Tehran, it does not matter who is in the White House. What is important is Washington’s commitment to respect international rights, rules and standards, not to interfere in the affairs of others and respect their obligations.”
