Zarif: Difficult days ahead for Iran during Trump’s term

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has forecast that his country would have difficult days during President Donald Trump’s term in office.

 

He, however, added that domestic structures of the US, international relations and equations have serious impact on the implementation of the electoral promises of the US president.

 

In an interview with Ettelaat newspaper in Tehran, he said that personal ties between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his American counterpart are of high importance.

 

In the meantime, the rivalry between Russia and the US and their domestic structures are capable of posing obstacles to the development of ties between the two presidents, he added.

 

Speaking about of the possible military actions, Zarif stated that President Trump’s plans to help the domestic economy of the US generate the idea that he will demonstrate less interest in military adventures.

 

Elaborating on concerns over Trump’s approach to Iran’s nuclear deal (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action/JCPOA), Zarif said the JCPOA is not a bilateral accord between Iran and the US, adding the nuclear accord has been implemented.

 

The Americans neither in Trump’s term nor in the term of the former President Barack Obama did not tend to help concerning the implementation of the nuclear deal, Zarif mentioned.

 

Saying that Trump may make efforts to renegotiate the nuclear deal, he added that Iran alongside with other signatories of the accord is against reexamining the JCPOA.

 

Iran and the world powers in 2015 reached a historic deal on Tehran's nuclear program removing sanctions on the Islamic Republic in exchange for curbing the country's nuclear program.

 

The officials from Iran and the US have recently exchanged sharp criticism amid reports on the Islamic Republic’s recent missile tests.
