Trump Sold on B-Team’s Folly: Zarif

Mohammad Javad Zarif

Foreign Minister of Iran Mohammad Javad Zarif has blamed US President Donald Trump for following a stupid ploy devised by the B-Team – Bin Salman, Bin Zayed, Bolton, and Bibi – to scrap the 2015 Iran nuclear deal in the hope of reaching a better agreement.

In a Twitter post on Monday, Zarif said the US president has been sold on the B-Team’s “folly that killing JCPOA through Economic Terrorism (on Iran) can get him a better deal.”

“As it becomes increasingly clear that there won’t be a better deal, they’re bizarrely urging Iran’s full compliance,” the top Iranian diplomat added, referring to the calls on Iran to keep honouring the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

“There’s a way out, but not with B-Team in charge,” Zarif stated.

Trump, who pulled the US out of the JCPOA in May 2018, has repeatedly called for a new agreement with Iran.

Iran has dismissed the chance of any negotiations with the US, saying Washington must first remove the sanctions against Tehran and return to the nuclear deal.
