Iran FM Tweets US Offer to Reach Treaty Only Mocks Call for Peace

Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Thursday the United States cannot seek to negotiate a new treaty with Tehran while it has violated its treaty obligations by withdrawing from a 2015 nuclear deal.

@JZarif

US calls JCPOA “a personal agreement between two governments”, claiming it “seeks a treaty”. Wrong. It’s an int’l accord enshrined in a UN SC res. Plus, US has violated its treaty obligations too & faces 2 suits at ICJ. Apparently, US only mocks calls for peace.
