Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote on his tweet late on Tuesday that Iran’s security and stability is based on its own people.
“Unlike cordial regional friends of Trump, the Iranian people are entitled to vote and oppose,” he said.
The rights achieved with great efforts will be safeguarded and intruders will never be allowed to violate the people’s rights through hostility and vandalism, he said.
US President Donald Trump has posted several tweets to show his support for the protests which have occured in a number of Iranian cities since Thursday.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi has also denounced US president 'insulting' tweets about the recent protests in Iran, urging him to avoid interfering in the Islamic Republic's internal affairs.
