Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian foreign ministry spokesman emphasized that the United Nations Security Council’s emergency meeting that was held on the recent protests in Iran at the request of the United States was another failure for US president Donald Trump.

Iranian foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said Monday at his weekly press conference, “Holding meeting on domestic issues of countries which faced with a big no was nothing but another failure for Trump at the global level.

He also said that the upcoming talks expected to be held between Iran and the EU this week will only focus on nuclear issue.

“Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif is invited by EU's foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini to hold talks on implementation of the nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA),” ‎the spokesman added.

“Besides Zarif and Mogherini three European foreign ministers will take part in the meeting,” Qassemi went on to say.

Qassemi also commented on the upcoming Iran sanctions waiver and Trump's report to the Congress on the JCPOA, saying that possible withdrawal of the US from the nuclear deal or any unreasonable decision by Washington will be resulted with Iran’s “proportional and heavy” reaction.

He added that any grave mistake by the US will lead to Washington's regret.
