Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has downplayed the recent remarks by US President Donald Trump on the possibility of Washington staying committed to the nuclear deal with Tehran.
“Do not pay much attention to Trump’s words,” Zarif said, speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a cabinet session in Tehran on Wednesday.
He made the remarks in reaction to Trump’s comments published on Sunday. The US president said it was “possible” that the US would not remain in the nuclear deal.
“I believe they have broken the spirit of the agreement,” Trump told the Associated Press. “There is a spirit to agreements, and they have broken it.”
Trump had earlier made the same accusation against Iran Thursday. In response, Zarif said Washington itself has not remained committed to the text of the JCPOA, let alone to its spirit.
