Iran’s Zarif into Japan PM – We Aren’t Seeking Heightened Tensions

Iran isn’t attempting to improve tension but each nation ought to be able to appreciate its rights under international law,” Foreign Minister Mohamma Javad Zarif said on Wednesday.

Zarif created the remark in Yokohama, near Tokyo, in the Start of a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

“As our president has stated, we aren’t always trying older anxieties,” Zarif said, speaking through a translator.

“We consider every nation needs to be able to appreciate its rights under international law”

U.S. President Donald Trump pulled the USA from an global agreement aimed at curbing Iran’s nuclear programme at 2015 and also reimposed sanctions on it.

Trump said on Monday he would meet Iran’s president under the ideal situation to terminate the confrontation on the nuclear bargain, which talks were underway to determine how nations could open bank lines to maintain Iran’s economy afloat.

However, Trump ruled out raising economic sanctions to compensate for losses caused by Iran. Abe visited Tehran in June to attempt to ease pressures.
