He made the remark in a session in the US Council of Foreign Affairs here on Monday where he commented on a number of issues.
Asked about the execution of an Iranian culprit recently, he said that in Iran, the judiciary stands independent of the government and the government has no role in the courts’ decisions.
He further stressed that the execution of this person is not related to his presence in some protest rallies.
Stressing that Iran respects international regulations, the Iranian Foreign Minister said Tehran respects the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) as an international agreement and will never assault any countries.
He further stressed that “rather, it is the US people should worry about because America has become the source of concern for the whole international community by violating international norms.”
He said it is the US which has to prove it respects the nuclear agreement while Iran is still is a member of the deal. “We are still a member of the JCPOA. Iran is still even incapable of placing orders to buy flu vaccines because of the US bans. The orders which are to be placed using our own money not its (US) money.”
***US isolated in world now, not Iran
Zarif also commented on the treason against the Palestinian nation by the normalization deal signed by the UAE and Bahrain which he said did not result in Iran’s isolation and said “when talking about isolation, you should look at what happened in the UNSC to see which country has been isolated. As everybody knows, the UAE and Bahrain had already had relations with the occupying regime of Israel. So let’s not make jokes.”
