Iran Expects U.S. To Accept Nuclear Deal 'Once Dust Settles'

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said he believes the next U.S. administration would accept the nuclear deal Iran signed with the United States and other world powers "once the dust has settled, and people are briefed about the realities of the region and the world." During a visit to the Czech Republic, Zarif -- standing next to his Czech counterpart, Lubomir Zaoralek -- was asked about the future of the agreement, known as the JCPOA, because U.S. President-elect Donald Trump has criticized the deal and said he wants to scrap it.
