US íknee-on-neckí technique failed with Iran, will fail with African-Americans: FM Zarif

Iranís foreign minister says the US administration is using the same repression technique against its African-American population, which it has been applying to Iranians for two years, but to no avail.

In a post on his official Twitter account on Monday, Mohammad Javad Zarif made a comparison between Washingtonís so-called "maximum-pressure" campaign against Tehran and the "knee-on-neck" technique used by US police when arresting Black Americans, which in its latest example led to the death in custody of an unarmed African-American in the city of Minneapolis in Minnesota.

"The ‘knee-on-neckí technique is nothing new," Zarif wrote, adding that it was administered to African-Americans by the "same cabal," which has been pursuing the campaign of "maximum pressure" against 80 million Iranians during the past two years.

Iranís top diplomat added that just in the same way that USí repressive technique failed to force Iranians into submission, it will also fail to bring African-Americans to their knees.

"It hasnít brought us to our knees. Nor will it abase African-Americans," Zarif said.

Zarifís tweet comes at a time that angry protests are spreading across the United States following the recent choking to death of unarmed African-American George Floyd by a white police officer in Minneapolis.

Police have responded with tear gas canisters and rubber bullets to the protests that have so far engulfed at least 30 US cities. Minnesota, where the murder took place, has even activated the National Guard against the protesters in a rare move.

Over 1,400 people have been arrested across the United States in angry protests over the death of the unarmed black man in police custody.

As demonstrators clashed with police outside the White House on Friday, President Donald Trump was taken to the underground bunker for a period of time.

Trump was there for a little under an hour before being brought upstairs as protesters pulled metal barricades away from the White House gates, The New York Times reported Sunday.

In a Tweet on Sunday, the Iranian Foreign Ministry criticized Washingtonís heavy-handed crackdown on protests against police racism and brutality, saying instead of using ‘vicious dogs and ominous weaponsí, the US government should listen to the people and change its bankrupt policies.

The ministry alluded to the fact that the current problems nagging the United States, including the self-created crisis following the COVID-19 outbreak, stem from failure of the administration of President Trump to keep its promise of stopping wasting money on foreign adventurism.
