Raisi: Tehran Unwilling to Conduct Nuclear Deal Talks If They Do Not Serve Iran's Interests

Chief Justice of Iran Ebrahim Raisi won presidential race over the weekend and will replace current President Hassan Rouhani in August of this year. His election has sparked concerns about Tehran's readiness to engage in diplomacy due to Raisi being an anti-West hardliner.

Newly elected president of Iran, Ebrahim Raisi, has stated during his first press conference that under his government Tehran will continue to engage in talks regarding the restoration of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA, also known as the Iran nuclear deal), but added that the country's diplomacy will not be limited to them.

"Our foreign policy will not be limited to the nuclear deal. We will have interaction with the world. We will not tie the Iranian people's interests to the nuclear deal", Raisi said.
