DUBAI (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump should realize that Iranians become more united when bullied, Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said on Tuesday in remarks broadcast live on state television.

Iran announced on Monday it had amassed more low-enriched uranium than permitted under its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers, drawing a warning from Trump that Tehran was “playing with fire.”

“Mr Trump should understand that when one uses bullying language against a civilized nation, they become more united,” Larijani said. U.S. threats had united political factions in Iran, he added.
