Iran describes Trump’s remarks as surprising

IRNA – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Wednesday described US President Donald Trump’s remarks at the UN Security Council as surprising.

It is surprising that a person who himself violated the UNSC’s resolution, speaks about respecting this international institution, Mohammad Javad Zarif said.

He told reporters after the UN Security Council meeting, headed by the US President Donald Trump.

US president mounted pressure on Iran and on May 8 announced that Washington would withdraw from Iran’s nuclear deal and re-impose nuclear-related sanctions on the country.

This is while most world powers, including Russia, China, and the European Union, have repeatedly stressed that keeping the deal is in the interest of the world peace and security.
