April 20, the Iranian foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has demanded from the United States to comply with the terms of the nuclear deal, and not throw accusations against Tehran. “Battered American charges cannot disguise the fact that Washington is forced to admit the fact of Iran’s compliance with nuclear deal,” said Zarif.
A day earlier, U.S. Secretary of state Rex Tillerson called the failed approach of strategic patience against Iran. “Joint comprehensive plan of action failed in reaching your goal of non-nuclear status of Iran. It only postpones their goal is to become a nuclear state. This transaction represents the failed approach of the past,” he said.
