TEHRAN, July 15 (Xinhua) - Iran on Saturday slammed the U.S. President Trump's description of the country as a rogue state, Iran's state news agency IRNA quoted the foreign ministry spokesman as saying.
"Trump ought to seek the reason for subversion and rebellion in his own arbitrary and conflicting policies and actions, as well as those of his arrogant, aggressive and occupying allies in the region," said foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi.
President Trump said on Thursday that new threats were emerging from "rogue regimes like North Korea, Iran and Syriaand the governments that finance and support them."
Senior Iranian officials have blamed U.S-allied Saudi Arabia, Iran's Sunni Muslim regional rival, for instability and attacks in the Middle East, including last month's assaults that killed 18 people in Tehran.
