TEHRAN, June 01 (MNA) – South African International Relations and Cooperation Minister Naledi Pandor affirmed US House Speaker Mike Johnson’s prediction that the US would be next if ICC is allowed to prosecute Israeli leadership.According to the Israeli regime's media, Pandor’s comments were addressed to an audience at a mosque in Cape Town, South Africa.

In the MEMRI (the Middle East Media Research Institute) video, the South African minister donned a black and white checkered keffiyeh and stood in front of a Palestinian flag.

“[Speaker Johnson] said that if the ICC is allowed to threaten Israel's leaders, then we know that America will be next.

Our response is: Of course!" Pandor exclaimed in the video clip.

During a news conference last month, Johnson told reporters that “if the ICC is allowed to threaten Israel’s leader, we know that America will be next.” "I would wish I were shoulder to shoulder with the men and women in Rafah," Pandor told the audience at the Cape Town mosque.

"That is where I feel I should be." The South African official went on to say that nations and officials who provide military and financial assistance for Israel’s war against Palestinian in Gaza “will be liable for prosecution as well.” SD/PR
