The recent remarks of U.S. President Barack Obama on Iran’s nuclear program is “unacceptable,” Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif said on Tuesday.
“It is clear that Obama’s comments are meant to win the U.S. public opinion and counter the propaganda campaign by the Israeli prime minister (Benjamin Netanyahu),” Zarif was quoted as saying by Press TV.
Obama told media on Monday that Iran has to halt its sensitive nuclear program for at least 10 years in a run for a comprehensive nuclear deal with the world major powers.
Obama’s remarks is also aimed at easing the radical stance of some parties inside the United States which are opposed to the negotiations over Tehran’s nuclear program, Zarif told reporters on the sidelines of a UN Human Rights Council meeting in Geneva.
Representatives from Iran and the United States resumed their bilateral talks over Tehran’s nuclear program in the Swiss city of Montreux on Tuesday ahead of multilateral talks between Iran and the six world powers (the U.S., Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany) slated for Thursday. Enditem
