“US domestic regulations are their own business but the international community holds the American government responsible for fulfilling the international commitments of US,” he highlightred, “it bears a prime importance.”

When he was asked what the prospect of the JCPOA will be and how the Iranian administration would react to recent threats of US President Trump, Mr. Zarif reassured that the final decision will be made in consistence with what Americans do.
