The resignation of Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif has not been accepted by the country’s president, the spokesman for the ministry said a statement.
All interpretations and analysis around the reasons behind the resignation of Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, beyond what he posted on his Instagram account, are not accurate and, as the chief of staff of the president of Iran said today, the resignation has not been accepted,” spokesman Bahram Qasemi said according to Iranian Fars news.
Zarif announced resignation from his post in a statement on his Instagram account on Monday.
“I am apologising [to] you for all the shortcomings … in the past years during my time as foreign minister … I thank the Iranian nation and officials,” he wrote on his Instagram page jzarif_ir.
