TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said no matter who the United States’ president is, Washington has to carry out its commitments under the July 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers.
“We do not interfere in the internal affairs of other countries,” Zarif, who is on an official visit to Romania, told reporters on Wednesday, after Republican candidate Donald Trump emerged victorious in the US presidential elections.
“This is the American people’s election,” he added.
Zarif, however, underlined that anyone becoming US president ought to recognize the realities of the world and the Middle East and face them realistically.
“Iran and the US have no political relations but the US must carry out what it has undertaken as an international multilateral commitment in the JCPOA,” he stressed, referring to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the nuclear agreement Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) reached in July 2015 and implemented in January this year.
Republican Donald Trump stunned the world by defeating Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House, ending eight years of Democratic rule.
