The Trump Administration Will Reportedly Recertify Iran's Nuclear Deal

Posted July 15, 2017

Zarif travelled to U.S. to partake in the United Nations' High-Level Political Forum 2017.

The Weekly Standard, citing four unnamed sources, said Trump will make the formal move before a congressionally mandated deadline Monday.

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif suggested the USA to reconsider its policy towards the landmark nuclear deal as it is an global agreement and indicated that the policy of force and pressure is inefficient.

The top European Union official stressed the importance of the regular meetings of the Joint Commission in order to "ensure transparency, constant dialogue and implementation by all" and noted that the next meeting of the commission is scheduled to be held in the Austrian capital Vienna on July 21.

"The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) proved that followers of the policy of pressure have finally realized its inefficiency, therefore, the United States should also reconsider its approach towards the agreement", Iran's IRNA news agency quoted Zarif as saying in NY.

US President Donald Trump is "very likely" to state that Iran is adhering to its nuclear agreement although he continues to have reservations about it, a senior US official said on Thursday.

"I think at the end of the day, everybody will see that the agreement will represent an outcome that was the best possibility for all concerned [parties]", he pointed out.

Iran denies the claim that its nuclear activities might have had military aspects, saying the program is totally for peaceful applications.

In response to a question by the Press TV correspondent about the possibility of any meeting between Iranian and American officials during the NY visit, Zarif said, "For this visit, no meetings have been planned".

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif believes the United States should take a new path under Trump.

Syria's warring parties have attended five rounds of peace talks brokered by Iran, Russia and Turkey in the Kazakh capital, Astana.
