Zarif: No change in diplomacy apparatus for foreigners’ pleasure

Tehran, Oct 2, IRNA – Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif said on Sunday that the ministry is seeking to promote economic diplomacy and it will not change any official just to please foreigners.

Referring to his presence in Majlis open session today, Zarif said that accusing Foreign Ministry of changing officials just for foreigners’ pleasure is an insult to the entire system not a single ministry.

Zarif also complained that some see only negative aspects of Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and they should take a comprehensive look at the deal.

The report released on the JCPOA is very long and contains positive and negative cases but some see all negative aspects ignoring the other dimensions, he said.

Foreign Ministry has so far released two reports on the deal and it will release the third in legal time, he said, noting that his ministry has always been sincere in its reports.

Sincerity does not mean to say negative aspects; rather reality which encompasses positive and negative issues should be expressed, he said.
