Zarif to Biden: Your admin following Trump’s footsteps

TEHRAN – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Tuesday that President Joe Biden’s administration is following Donald Trump’s policy by capitalizing on the illegal sanctions as a “leverage” against Iran.

“Your admin follows Trump’s footsteps while trying to use his unlawful sanctions as ‘leverage’,” Zarif tweeted by making a reference to Biden’s tweets on June 20, 2019 in which he said, “It’s sadly ironic that the State Department is now calling on Iran to abide by the very deal the Trump administration abandoned.”

At the time, Biden also wrote, “By walking away from diplomacy, Trump has made military conflict more likely. Another war in the Middle East is the last thing we need.”

Zarif advised Biden to quit this approach, saying, “Nasty habits die hard. Time to kick this one.”
