Zarif arrived in NY early Friday morning to attend the High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development and to meet counterparts on the sideline of the forum.

There are 2 comments on the The Washington Post story from 10 hrs ago, titled Administration expected to recertify Obama's Iran nuclear deal that Trump once promised to kill.

"We believe that the American leaders should change their approach towards the agreement, otherwise they would not be contributing to its survival", the Foreign Minister added.

'The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) demonstrates that followers of the policy of pressure are wrong; therefore, the U.S. should also reconsider its approach towards the agreement, ' the Iranian minister said.

"The worst deal I think I've ever seen negotiated that you started is the Iran deal".

Under the agreement, limits were put on Iran's nuclear activities in exchange for, among other things, the removal of all nuclear-related bans against the Islamic Republic.

A senior fellow at the Center for the Study of the Middle East of the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Candidate of Historical Sciences Elena Dunayeva, speaking to Vestnik Kavkaza, noted that Anti-Iranian rhetoric, which is now being heated in the USA, does not threaten a nuclear deal with Iran in any way. "I plan to meet not with U.S. officials, but with members of the wider intellectual community that have impact on United States policy-making".

The remarks come after Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi formally declared victory of the country's forces over the Daesh Takfiri terrorist group on Monday, one day after the country's military and Popular Mobilization Forces took full control of the strategic city of Mosul. That is, Trump's current uncertain policy has led to a lot of confusion and destabilization in the Middle East region.

The negotiations are aimed at bringing an end to the foreign-backed militancy in Syria, which began in March 2011.
