Never threaten the Iranian nation.
Refusing to scale down on the threats to Iran, US President Donald Trump, on Monday, tweeted a warning to Iran - ' IRAN WILL NEVER HAVE A NUCLEAR WEAPON!' in his characteristic all-Caps style. This development comes after the Iraqi parliament voted to expel 5,000 American troops from the country. Moreover, Iran has declared that it was abandoning the most crucial parts of the 2015 international nuclear deal.
