In the meeting with Pakistan’s special envoy on Sunday, Zarif stressed the need to promote regional cooperation to help establish peace in Afghanistan and preserve achievements gained by the Afghan people.

Sadiq said that his consultations with the Iranian foreign minister were satisfactory.

The Pakistani envoy elaborated on Pakistan’s stance on developments in Afghanistan.

About Sadiq’s visit, Pakistan’s Embassy in Tehran had stated that it was to follow a high level of talks between the special envoy and top Iranian officials on regional issues and events in Afghanistan as well.

Yesterday, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif’s letter to the European Union’s foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell, outlines Iran’s stance on the status of the 2015 nuclear deal and contains no initiative.

In his Friday letter, Zarif has censured the US and European parties for their poor performance with regard to the landmark agreement.

“It is announced in the letter that if the United States intends to reform its illegal measures in violating the JCPOA and imposing cruel sanctions, the first essential step is to return to full compliance as the violating party,” Khatibzadeh said.

Zarif has also reiterated that Iran would reverse all its measures only after other parties fully implement their commitments.
