The Foreign Minister of Iran Mohammad Javad Zarif has warned new American leadership unpredictable consequences if failed to live up to commitments under the nuclear deal.

According to the details, 10th of February 2021 is the 42nd Anniversary of the Victory of the Islamic Revolution of Iran and is marked as the National Day of Iran.

On account of this day, the Iranian Foreign Minister in message said that new Biden administration has to return to compliance with the 2015 nuclear agreement because Washington is the party that abandoned the deal and violated its terms.

He said, “With the new Biden Administration there is an opportunity to try a new approach, but the current window is fleeting.

The Iranian FM said that,

Soon my government will be compelled to take further action in response to the American and European dismal failure to live up to their commitments under the nuclear deal.

US President Joe Biden “has a choice,” Zarif said, adding that he can either “build on the failures” of his predecessor Donald Trump or break with his hostile approach and choose a new path in dealing with Iran.

It is worth mentioning here that in 2015, Iran and six world powers signed the nuclear accord, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

However, inMay 2018, United States under Republican President Donald Trump left the JCPOA, which was also ratified in the form of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231, and re-imposed illegal sanctions against Tehran in flagrant violation of the UN document.

On the other hand, the President of Uzbekistan, in a message to Iran’s President, congratulated the anniversary of the victory of the Islamic Revolution and announced his readiness to expand bilateral relations.

President of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev emphasized the historical ties, the long-standing culture of the two countries, and traditional friendship as a strong basis for bilateral relations.
