The Iranian government slammed the Trump administration Monday over its decision to relocate the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem; saying the United States has thrust the region into a “crisis” by acting “immaturely.”
The Iranian parliament’s speaker blasted the President just hours before Israeli and American officials opened the renovated embassy; saying the “US president is not capable” of judging the consequences of his actions.
“America has entered a crisis of strategic decision-making that looks at the international arena immaturely and adventurously,” said parliament speaker Ali Larijani.
“I believe the current US president is not capable of identifying and judging the long-term consequences of his actions,” he added. “Feeblemindedness is costly for statesmen and they will eventually have to pay the price.”
The relocation of the embassy to Jerusalem sparked widespread protests throughout the region over the weekend, with at least 37 Palestinian protesters killed after attacking the Israel-Gaza border crossing.
