Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif greets fellow diplomats after listening to U.S. President Barack Obama address the U.N. General Assembly on September 24, 2013 in New York City.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif renewed his Facebook diplomacy by penning another diary entry cheering the isolation of Israel at the United Nations.
This year, Iran did not allow Israel to twist words of Iranian diplomats and play the role of the victim, Zarif wrote on his Facebook page ahead of today’s meeting of U.S., U.K., Russia, China, France and Germany’s foreign ministers – known as the P5+1 — to start talks on Iran’s nuclear program.
For the first time in eight years, it is Israel that is isolated, Zarif said.
Iran’s former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad famously denied the Holocaust and lambasted the West and Israel during his eight-year tenure.
Zarif said he did not expect a breakthrough at today’s P5+1 meeting.
