The iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Wednesday that it was difficult to imagine negotiations with the United States, in which more “there is no trust”, in the aftermath of the restoration of u.s. sanctions against Tehran. “Imagine the negotiations now, how can we trust them?”, said Mr. Zarif to the press on the channel of public information IRINN. “America has constantly zigzagged, nobody can trust him,”-he said. Washington, who retired in may of the agreement on the iranian nuclear issue concluded in 2015 with the major powers, said they want to exert “maximum pressure” on Iran through new sanctions.

But for Mr. Zarif, “before, nobody was supporting Iran. Now, all countries of the world (the) support”.
The Europeans, them also signatories of the agreement are said to be determined to save the text, and to “protect the european economic operators engaged in legitimate business with Iran”.
