Revolutionary Guards Chief Has Harsh Words for FM Zarif

The head of Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guards had harsh words on Tuesday for the country's foreign minister, over comments he had made about the military's ability to withstand a potential American attack.

The criticism against Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif appeared to be part of the broader political pushback by Iranian hard-liners against President Hassan Rouhani's new administration, reported The Associated Press (AP).
