Iran’s Foreign Minister Has Some Things He Wants to Say to Donald Trump

Mohammad javad ZarifDespite President Donald Trump’s threats to blow it up, the Iran nuclear deal still has a “better than 50” percent chance of surviving the next year, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif told POLITICO in an extensive interview detailing how his country will—and won’t—respond to Trump’s extraordinary campaign against the agreement the American president calls “an embarrassment to the United States.”

Zarif called Trump’s harsh attack on Iran in his recent U.N. speech “the most insulting statement that had ever been made by any U.S. president against Iran since the Revolution.” But he said it has backfired, isolating the United States and undermining its credibility “as a reliable negotiating partner” on the world stage, and he vowed not to renegotiate the nuclear deal. If Trump tried to unravel it, Zarif said in the interview for The Global Politico, our weekly podcast on world affairs, Iran would consider everything from “walking away from the deal to somehow accommodating Europe.”

In the trendy Sant Antoni neighborhood, the voters included the elderly, middle-aged women with with their dogs, mothers with their children. And there were more people lined up than anyone remembered seeing for a long time.
