Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote on social media that he mistrusts the US will to return to the multilateral pact, from which it withdrew in May 2018.

‘It is not yet clear whether the president of the United States (Joe Biden) and his Secretary of State Anthony Blinken are willing to abandon the ‘maximum pressure’ policy ordered by Donald Trump and Mike Pompeo,’ he said.

And neither will they abandon the economic terrorism as a way to negotiate, he added.

Zarif responded in this way to Blinken, who exposed Iran’s attitude towards the JCPOA.

According to the head of US diplomacy, he was not sure about Tehran’s intention to fully resume its commitments with the deal signed in 2015.

After its withdrawal, the United States reimposed all sanctions lifted in virtue of the deal and launched a ‘maximum pressure’ campaign to impose another pact and destroy the Iranian economy.

The Islamic Republic responded with maximum resistance, its leaders said, and began to gradually cut its nuclear obligations, but without abandoning the JCPOA.
