TEHRAN - Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian on Saturday warned Washington against using "language of threat" against the Islamic republic.

"History ought to have taught the United States that language of threat against Iran and Iranians achieves nothing," Amir-Abdollahian tweeted.

"Futile attempts at deflection won't allow the United States to evade responsibility for the thousands of Iranian and other victims of its involvement in terrorist crimes in our region," he said.

The foreign minister's remarks came after the US Justice Department on Wednesday announced criminal charges against a member of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guard Corps for allegedly planning the assassination of former US national security advisor John Bolton.

The accusations were dismissed by the Iranian Foreign Ministry on Thursday.
