Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif calls for Trump to "implement the nuclear deal"

Iran’s semi-official news agency Tasnim has quoted the country’s foreign minister as saying that the United States needs to implement its part of multilateral international commitments under last year’s historic nuclear deal.

The comments Wednesday by Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif came after businessman Donald Trump’s election as U.S. president.

Zarif says that America has accepted multilateral international commitments and has to “implement the nuclear deal.”
