Iranian FM: Nuclear deal cannot be renegotiated — period

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says the 2015 nuclear deal “cannot be renegotiated — period.”

“Let’s stop posturing,” he tweets, “which we both did 2003-2012 to no avail — and get down to implementing [the deal] which we both actually signed on to.”

Iran has demanded an immediate removal of US sanctions as a precondition to its return to compliance with the deal, while Washington has said Iran must first end its violations of the accord.
