The United States seeks to change power in Iran, but they need to recognize the real state of things, said Iranian FM Mohammad Javad Zarif at the Munich Security Conference.
US President Donald Trump was convinced that Iran is close to the collapse of the regime, he said addinf that Trump is mistaken, and not only about the change of power, but also about everything that they strive for.
According to him, they just have to recognize the reality of the Iranian regime.
Commenting on the talks with the US, Zarif noted it was not about their beginning, but about the return of the US to the negotiating table.
He recalled Iran had already held talks with the US on the nuclear deal.
The UK, Germany, China, Russia, the US, France and Iran announced in 2015 the Iranian deal provided for the lifting of sanctions in exchange for limiting Iran’s nuclear program. The US announced a unilateral withdrawal from it in May 2018 and re-imposed sanctions on Iran. Meanwhile, Iran announced a phased reduction of its obligations under the deal.
