  2. It looked like the Nick was sent to intimidate this guy from WH.

  3. Zarif answers are pretty reasonable
    And childish arguments from CNN interviewer to just feed the media nothing more !

    Let’s be honest

    Nick Paton Walsh was not the right guy for this interview. you had me mad this whole video lmao. you asking the same question a thousand times like he going to change the answer. Sound like a bias interviewer.

  5. The interviewer should asked why the US, UK and Western Countries are allowed to provide the Saudis with weapons to attack Yemenis. If the Saudis are entitled to receive weapons from another country to attack Yemen, then isn’t Yemen allowed to access weapons from outsiders to fight against the Saudis? Double standard? You can’t go around saying one side (Saudis) are entitled to gain access to outside weapons and help, but not the other side (Yemen). We don’t need another decade of wars. And we don’t need another WMD case.

      True. Saudis spend $90 billion annually on military in contrast to Iran, which spends $16 billion. I don’t get the logic here. You can invade countries and kill and displace millions of poor and innocent people, but God forbid if the victims try to defend themselves. This insanity needs to end before we destroy our human family and the world.

    • Van Wong the issues comes with allied nations. We can’t break treaties and they can’t either. It’s huge game of politics that would cause ww3 if anyone else got involved. I’m sorry I know it sucks

    • It’s called geopolitics. You want us to abandon everybody we aid, or just Saudi Arabia? What about Israel? Can we stop aiding pretty much all of Europe too? Stop bitching when it’s convenient because you’re ignorant of why countries (especially countries with resources and large economies) like to work together and avoid conflict. Iran will do what they want and reap the consequences. Acting like Iran has no clue what they’re doing and who is backing them lol

  6. Let the Saudis handle their business.
    If they think Iran was responsible, then do something about it, but of course they won’t
    because they are weak. They can’t defeat the Houthis in their backyard.

    • @Honour AK I can’t defeat the Taliban? Why would I want to do that?

    • @KT You call others ignoramus but can’t form coherent sentences.
      You sound drunk, what is your point?

    • @We are In decline We get that Einstein.

      Then why ask the question, rhetorical even. Everyone who has understanding knows Saudi is not a military might. They buy U.S. hardware to appease Americans, the lobbist, politicians who’s district manufactors these weapons creating jobs. The Saudi’s are not weak they have massive influence and soft power. Rub two brains cells together Tesla.

    • @We are In decline I didn’t ask a single question, you sound confused, are you in the right thread? How’s their massive influence and soft power doing in Yemen?

  7. I would vote for this guy if he was running.

  8. Zarif is well versed in his responses. Very educated in his field and makes valid points. Hopefully the truth comes out and is handled properly.

    Do you fear MBS Militarily ?
    Zarif: No
    Because Sadam was supported by EU, Soviet union, Saudi Arabia, US and entire world.. But we are still there and Sadam is no where to be found.

    • Murendeni Tshivhase loving this statement!

    • ​@Mwaniki Mwaniki The “LEGENDS” were rapists, ,MURDERERS some kind of”LEGEND” No time to fight us too busy fighting EACH OTHER!!r

    • ​@F Kh then you’re even DUMBER than HIM!!

      @Mwaniki Mwaniki Every nation involved is a terrorist nation in plan terms, just different methods for the same reason. The nations that control the narrative ,color their pictures how ever they want.
      This is what concerns me about Iran, its a theocratic government. They want a place on the world stage, i think they should. They are running out of time due to their population in spiraling decline. If they want to do something, Im not sure what it is they must act now. I keep hearing about the 12th imam, I dont know if they truely believe this or if its just manipulation for their population.

    • Murendeni Tshivhase great comment

  10. The Saudi’s corrupt boy now tries to drag Americans into a losing war he started five years ago. Finish what you started.

  11. Ben Salman thinks everything can be solved with his daddy’s money. This time he picked up a fight with the wrong country who fights back and daddy’s money could not help.

  12. Iran foreign minister speaks multiple languages, America’s just english 😂😂😂😂

  13. Israel has worked overtime the last 40 yrs, to ensure Americans could feel nothing but resentment towards the Iranians.

  14. This guy is smart and personable, he makes me believe that Iran is no more an evil force than the US is.

  15. America brings dictatorship not democracy to the Middle East.

  16. This guy is way more credible than Dictator Donnie.

  17. I just don’t believe anything the saudis or trump says….absolutely no credibility…due to all the lies so far.

    It seems that Iran is the only decent country in this region.

  19. No matter where the missile come from, either the usa defense system has huge flaws or saudi just let it happen.
