Iranian President: Meeting to discuss outcome of Zarif’s trip to France

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said a meeting will be held on Monday about the outcome of Sunday’s trip to France by Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his talks with French President Emmanuel Macron, ONA reports citing Tasnim News Agency.

“We were in contact with Mr. Zarif both before and after his trip to France and today, we would also consult with relevant officials in a meeting,” Rouhani said on Monday.

“We may go through a path that makes us 100 percent successful or not, we have to do our job… even when the probability of our success is 10 or 20 percent and we should not lose opportunities,” he added.

Note that Iranian FM Mohammad Javad Zarif visited French town of Biarritz where the Group of Seven leaders were meeting. He held more than three hours of talks, including with French President Macron, before heading back to Tehran.

“The discussions that were held between the president and Zarif were positive and will continue,” a French official said after the meeting, declining to take detailed questions.
