Zarif meets with President-elect Raisi

Zarif meets with President-elect Raisi

Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh congratulated the successful holding of the 13th presidential election and winning President-elect Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi.

Speaking at a weekly press conference on Monday, Khatibzadeh said, “Over the past 48 hours, more than 45 senior officials from different countries sent congratulatory messages to the President-elect. These officials included 24 presidents, prime ministers and heads of state, four parliament speakers and 17 senior political and international figures. The process of sending congratulatory messages to President-elect continues in future days”.

“Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif met with Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi today upon an invitation by the President-elect. During the meeting, the two sides discussed the JCPOA and Iran's foreign policy,” he added.

Regarding some speculations that the parties to the Vienna talks are going to reach an agreement with the new Iranian administration, Khatibzadeh said, “Such speculations are not true. All the parties in Vienna talked about the details, but none of them believes that they spent much time in Vienna”.

“Iran's policy has never been to delay lifting sanctions if possible. It is not unlikely that the next round of Vienna talks will be the final round, we have to see if all parties make their decisions or not,” the spokesman added.

Reacting to the recent remarks by US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, Khatibzadeh emphasized, “All American officials including Sullivan know that Iran has had a single policy in recent years. There will never be a discussion about a new JCPOA. If he has read the text of the JCPOA, it is stated in it that the full implementation of the JCPOA is a reassurance of the peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear activities and the case will be closed. Therefore, if anyone wants to be sure of the peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear program, it is better to put the full implementation of the JCPOA on its agenda”.

“The best that the United States can think of is to provide the necessary guarantees to return to the JCPOA and not to violate Resolution 2231,” he added.
