“We did not sign an "Obama deal" to go for a "Trump deal" now. Even if we did, who's to say we won't need Biden, Sanders or Warren deal next year?” Zarif said in a tweet on Wednesday, referring to US nominees competing against Trump in the 2020 presidential race.
He added that Iran believed in diplomacy “but not in re-negotiating a UNSC Resolution we agreed on with 6 Governments & EU.”
The remarks came a day after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson called for US President Donald Trump to replace Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), with his own new pact to resolves differences.
The UK Foreign Office, however, said afterwards the prime minister was only advocating the replacement of the existing deal if Washington and Iran were able to negotiate a better one.
