Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Saturday blasted Europe for failing to honor its obligations.
In a tweet marking 25 years on Srebrenica genocide, in which thousands of Bosnian Muslims were massacred, the top Iranian diplomat said Europe failed to take any action at the time to stop the massacre.
He also referred to the nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers by blaming European countries for nor preserving it.
25 yrs ago today, #SrebrenicaGenocide began as Europe failed to uphold its basic duties. Quarter of a century later Europe is plagued by same ineptitude.

July 11 marked the 25th anniversary of the Srebrenica genocide, the worst atrocity on European soil after the world war.
In 2018, US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew his country from the accord, also known as the JCPOA. Iran and the remaining parties launched talks to save the accord after the US withdrawal, but the three EU parties to the deal have failed to ensure Iran’s economic interests.
