According to the Foreign Ministry, Cohen argues that the only way to change Iran’s behavior is to apply “massive, immediate and comprehensive pressure” on Tehran.

The foreign minister also urges Sullivan to get the Europeans on board with enhanced sanctions on Iran.

Cohen thanks Sullivan for US efforts to expand the Abraham Accords.
