Iran distrustful of US as negotiating partner: intelligence minister

TEHRAN, Aug. 07 (MNA) – Iranian Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alavi says that Iran will not trust the United States even if it comes back to the nuclear deal from which it pulled out back in May.

"If Trump returns to the JCPOA, there is no guarantee that the US does not violate it again. Iran does not trust the United States as a negotiating partner,” Mahmoud Alavi said in the Province of Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad on Tuesday.

“How can someone who withdraws from an international agreement be trusted,” Alavi noted.

He said that the Americans will not succeed in forcing into submission the Iranian people, who have resisted pressures and sanctions for the past forty years. He further called on the US president not to insist on its bullying and deceptive behavior toward Iran.

Pointing out that the US administration aims to make the Iranians feel disappointed with their government and to create division inside the country, the Iranian intelligence minister said that Trump should know that the people of Iran will not surrender, adding that if the enemies of Iran dare to make a mistake, they will receive a harsh response from the Establishment.
