(Persia Digest) – In answer to the resignation letter tendered by Javad Zarif, Iran’s President has answered: “In the words of the Supreme Leader, you are “trustworthy, brave, courageous, and devoted”, standing at the forefront of all-encompassing pressures applied by the US. I deem your resignation against our national interests and, thus, do not accept it.”

In a letter rejecting the resignation of Iran’s top diplomat today, Wednesday, Hassan Rouhani reiterated: “I am fully aware of the pressures on the country’s diplomacy machine, cabinet, and even the president elected by the people. We shall remain faithful to our pledge to God and the people to the end and I am certain that we will cross this difficult bridge with the help of God.”
