As Trump is unpredictable person, nothing should be ruled out: Iran’s envoy to UN

As Trump is unpredictable person, nothing should be ruled out: Iran’s envoy to UN

Tehran (ISNA) - Iran’s ambassador and permanent representative to the United Nations Majid Takht Ravanchi stressed that given the current conditions in the US and the sensitivities of his rivals towards Trump's possible decisions and actions, it is unlikely that he will be a source of concern in the final days of his term, especially on the issue of Iran's nuclear deal.

Regarding the US military moves in the region and concerns on Trump's likely resort to nuclear weapons, he said in an interview with the Strategic Council on Foreign Relations, “The US president has done a lot of strange things over the years which gives reasons for concerns that he may do something unexpected, even in the days leading up to the end of his presidency”.

“Although no issue should be ruled out due to his unpredictability, he will not go in this direction, but we must remain vigilant,” Majid Takht Ravanchi added.

Analyzing the strategic approach of the next US administration towards Iran, the ambassador noted that the different governments in the US, whether Democratic or Republican, do not differ much in their international policies.

“Trump government adopted unusual policies and its actions both toward Iran and toward other countries were unpredictable for many observers inside and outside the US,” he emphasized.

In general, one should not expect fundamental differences in US policy toward Iran, Takht Ravanchi said, noting that sanctions against Iran in various US Democratic or Republican administrations have continued.

“It seems that Biden administration would continue the same trend, although differences in tactics may be seen in some areas,” Iran's ambassador to UN said.
