New US president must comply with JCPOA: Zarif
Iran’s FM Zarif in response to Donald Trump’s winning the US presidential election early this morning said the new president has a duty to stay committed to US obligations under the nuclear deal.
“We do not interfere in the internal affairs of other countries,” Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif who is on a tour to three Eastern European countries, told reporters on Wednesday in Romanian capital Bucharest, in regard to Donald Trump’s success at winning the US presidential election this morning.
“This is the choice of the American people,” he continued, “but whoever sits at the White House must face the developments in the world and region with a realisitc approach.”
He went on to stress that Iran and the US have no political relations; “however, the US president is obliged to implement whatever his country has agreed to as an international, multilateral commitment under the nuclear deal.”
Republican candidate Donald Trump was declared the victor in the US presidential election on Wednesday by having won 276 electoral votes. His democrat rival Hilary Clinton only managed to win 218 electoral votes, despite many western media predictions.
Foreign Minister Zarif heading a politico-economic delegation will depart Romania for Czech Republic and Slovakia as the last two legs of his Eastern European tour.
