Minister warns Trump to stop threatening Iran
The US recently evacuated non-emergency staff from the mission because of what it called a "serious" threat reportedly linked to Iran-backed forces in Iraq.
Writing on Twitter on Monday, Iran's foreign minister said the US president was being "goaded" by what he called the "B Team" - a reference to US National Security Adviser John Bolton, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.
Tensions began rising earlier this month when the US ended exemptions from sanctions for countries still buying from Iran.
The decision was intended to bring Iran's oil exports to zero, denying the government its main source of revenue.
Trump reinstated the sanctions last year after abandoning a landmark 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers that he wants to renegotiate.
