It is the U.S. President Donald Trump who is violating the international law and is bullying others to do the same, Mohammad Javad Zarif said with reference to the UNSC resolution 2231 on Iran's nuclear program.
On Tuesday, it was announced in Washington that Trump was going to chair a meeting of the UNSC on Iran on Sept. 26.
Trump would raise the topic concerning Iran's "violations of international law" in the UNSC meeting, said U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley.
