Zarif res­ig­na­tion ru­mor a mad story: For­eign Min­istry

Tehran Times - - POLITICS -

TEHRAN — For­eign Min­istry spokesman Bahram Qassemi has ve­he­mently dis­missed claims that For­eign Min­is­ter Mo­ham­mad Javad Zarif has re­signed, say­ing “some el­e­ments in­side the coun­try pub­lish false re­ports in a mad way”.

“It seems that ef­forts are be­ing made to un­der­mine the coun­try’s di­plo­matic ap­pa­ra­tus and sta­tus of the for­eign min­is­ter and spread lies in this re­spect,” he told ISNA on Satur­day.

He also dis­missed claims of Iran’s with­drawal from the 2015 nu­clear deal, of­fi­cially known as the Joint Com­pre­hen­sive Plan of Ac­tion.
