US midterm election results have no effect on Tehran-Washington ties: Zarif


Tehran (ISNA) – US midterm election results had no effect on Tehran-Washington relations as Iran didn’t determine its policy based on US’ internal affairs, Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif emphasized.

In a radio interview on Saturday, Mr. Zarif said, “I had mentioned in an interview with an American publication that we don’t make decisions based on US’ internal developments. It is not true that Democrats tend to Iran and Republicans don’t. It is a fact that Democrats and Republicans are against Iran and there is no doubt about it”.

“Iran’s foreign policy and the issue of 2015 nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) have nothing to do with US’ internal affairs,” he added.

“Will the midterm election results lead to intensification or balance of US’ policies against Iran is something that depends on how we act in international arena,” Mr. Zarif stated.
