Iran's Zarif says nuclear pact not dead, wary of 'Trump deal'

'I had a U.S. deal and the U.S. broke it.

If I have a Trump deal, how long will it last?'

Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said at a security conference in New Delhi on Wednesday.

Iran's foreign minister said on Wednesday (January 15) an existing nuclear deal the country struck with world powers was not dead and that he was unsure if any new pact agreed by U.S. President Donald Trump would last.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson called on Tuesday (January 14) for Trump to replace the 2015 deal with his own new pact to ensure Iran did not get an atomic weapon.

Trump's administration abandoned the pact aimed at curbing Iran's nuclear program in 2018 and has since reimposed economic sanctions on Tehran.

The U.S. president said in a tweet he agreed with Johnson on the need for a "Trump deal".

Iran is interested in diplomacy, but not in negotiating with the United States, Zarif said, adding the existing pact was among the "best deals" he could envisage.

Pfizer's COVID vaccine: Individual requires 2 shots given 3 weeks apart, says UK PM

After the formal authorisation of Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccine, United Kingdom Prime Minister Boris Johnson on December 02 said that the vials are going to be stored at -70 degrees Celsius and each person required two injections given three weeks apart. "There are immense logistical challenges. The vials are going to be stored at -70 degrees Celsius, each person needs two injections, three weeks apart. So it will inevitably take some months before almost vulnerable are protected. It's vital that we are not carried away with over-optimism or fall into the naive belief that the struggle is over. Today, in England, we have ended national restrictions, opening up significant parts of the economy," said PM Johnson on COVID vaccine.
