Iran's Zarif signs Armenia deals, continuing duties

Iran's Zarif signs Armenia deals, continuing duties

In a ceremony broadcast live on state TV, Zarif signed two agreements to expand cooperation between Iran and Armenia, Reuters said.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani rejected on Wednesday the resignation of Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, standing by a moderate ally long targeted by hardliners in internal factional struggles over a 2015 nuclear deal with the West.

Zarif thanked the Iranian nation and government officials on Wednesday for their support in the wake of his announcement.

"Evidence shows that there was no objective behind Mr. Zarif's absence at this meeting, and I should emphasize that he is the main person in charge of the Islamic Republic of Iran's foreign policy as the Foreign Minister", the commander stressed.

Earlier, a senior commander of the elite Revolutionary Guards said Zarif still enjoyed the support of Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

The US-educated veteran diplomat helped craft the pact that curbed Iran's nuclear program in return for sanctions relief.

The pointman for Iran's engagement in Syria and Iraq, where it has played a major role in training paramilitaries for both countries' successful campaigns against the jihadists of the Islamic State group, said Zarif was in full charge of Iranian foreign policy. However, it came after Zarif was not present for a meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Monday.

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, welcomed Zarif's departure.

Pressure has also mounted on Zarif since President Trump withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal and reinstalled sanctions, the BBC reports.

Soleimani blasted the "enemies' glee" and said it would have no effect on Iran's determination to "safeguard its national interests and the glorious victory of the Islamic resistance front".

It remains unclear what sparked Zarif's resignation.

Zarif is a key ally of Rouhani and has also enjoyed good relations with the European Union.

Over the last two days, India and Pakistan have ordered air strikes against one another, the first time in history that two nuclear-armed powers have done so, while ground forces have exchanged fire in more than a dozen locations.
