Mohsen Rezaei, an adviser to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has said that Iran will catch U.S. President Donald Trump and put him on trial.
“Ultimately, we will catch Trump and place him on trial, God willing. An international court will convene and Trump will have to stand trial. He should stand trial not just for what he did to our people, but for his crimes against other nations as well,” he said.
Earlier this month, the U.S. sent 1,500 military personal to Saudi Arabia in response to the attack on Saudi oil facilities, which the U.S. has blamed on Iran.
Rezaei said that the lack of U.S. military response after Iran shot down an American surveillance drone in June is proof of it’s inability to protect Saudi Arabia.
Khamenei’s adviser also warned that the additional U.S. military troops deployed to the Gulf region will not be safe until they leave.
“As long as America, England, and other foreign countries wish to remain in the region, the lack of security of the past 40 years will continue,” Rezaei said. “The first condition for security is the independence of [the region’s] countries.”
“The day the Americans leave the region, all the countries will become friends with one another,” he added.
