April 23, 2019

TEHRAN – Iranian Defense Minister Amir Hatami said on Tuesday that U.S. President Donald Trump is endangering international security by violating international law and ignoring humanitarian principles.

“Trump has been endangering security of the world by being selfish and violating international law and humanitarian principles,” he told reporters upon arrival at Vnukovo International Airport to attend the Moscow Conference on International Security.

He also said that the conference is a good opportunity to discuss international security.

“Today, Trumpism is the most important issue in the world which has characteristics similar to Nazism,” the defense minister remarked.

The minister said dimensions of such threats and common strategies to have a safer world will be discussed in such conferences. 

Hatami’s visit comes upon the official invitation of Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu.

According to the Russian Defense Ministry, the conference “will encompass the problems of utmost significance in terms of shaping views on the international security. Separate plenary sessions will offer space to exchange views on modern military challenges and threats, including the improvement of the arms control system.”
