Wednesday, 19 August 2020_Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says the US and the UK have desperately been trying to push back Iran to the era before the victory of the country’s Islamic Revolution in 1979, but are “humiliated” by the Iranian people.

US, UK desperately pushing back Iran but get ‘humiliated’ by Iranians: ZarifZarif made the comment in a tweet on Tuesday, also accusing the US along with the UK of trying to “suffocate Iranians’ demand for dignity in a coup overthrowing their elected government.”

67 years ago today, US/UK tried to suffocate the Iranian people’s demand for dignity in a coup overthrowing their elected government.

Since 1979, the US has desperately tried to resuscitate the past. Yet it keeps getting humiliated by the Iranian people.

Time to change tack?

— Javad Zarif (@JZarif) August 18, 2020

Zarif was referring to the 1953 coup d’état against the elected government of Iran’s then-Prime Minster Mohammad Mosaddeq. The anniversary of the Western-sponsored coup annually falls on August 18.

Moreover, the top Iranian diplomat suggested in his tweet that Washington had better change its approach toward Iranian people as it keeps getting humiliated by them.

In August 1953, the British intelligence agency MI6 and its American counterpart, the CIA, initiated the coup by the Iranian military, setting off a series of events, including riots on the streets of the capital Tehran, which led to the overthrow and arrest of Mosaddeq.
