Iran's foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, took aim at Senate Republicans on Tuesday for a letter co-signed by a number of deputies warning that any agreement struck between the Islamic Republic and the Obama administration would not be binding a future president.

Zarif posted a response to the letter on his Twitter account, calling the letter "a propaganda ploy" that was "unconventional" and "unprecedented in diplomatic history."

"This indicates that like [Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu, who considers peace as an existential threat, some are opposed to any agreement, regardless of its content," the foreign minister wrote.

The controversy erupted on Monday after 47 Republican caucus members sent a letter to Tehran warning of their intent to undermine any future multilateral agreement.
