The Coward has Left” says Iran after Biden Declared US President Elect

Iran celebrates Donald Trump’s defeat in US Presidential election - ‘The coward has left!’

Somalilandsun: IRANIANS have celebrated Donald Trump’s US election defeat amid growing tensions between Washington and Tehran. Reports

Tensions between the US and Iran have reached boiling point after the outgoing President Donald Trump pulled out of the Tehran nuclear deal. IN a recent escalation of tensions, Iranians have celebrated Mr Trump’s election defeat.

Hesameddin Ashena, an advisor to Iran’s president Hassan Rouhani, tweeted Iranians “stood their ground bravely until that coward left” shortly after Joe Biden’s win.

Under the Trump administration Washington was seeking an extension of a United Nations (UN) arms embargo against Tehran.

The nuclear deal had restricted Iran’s nuclear weapons capability in return for sanctions relief.

However, Mr Trump abandoned the agreement in 2018 and has gone on to introduce a number of sanctions on Iranian oil exports.
