Iran's Foreign Minister Says Sanctions Would Kill Nuclear Deal

Gives interview to Time

|

In a wide-ranging interview with TIME in Tehran on Dec. 7, Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif spoke to writer and Iran expert Robin Wright about how the Geneva nuclear deal came together, how the government has to appeal to Iran's own parliament not to undermine the interim pact, and how any new sanctions passed by the United  States Congress would kill the deal.

The agreement, reached between Iran and six world powers in November, calls for a freeze on parts of Iran's nuclear program in exchange for an easing of sanctions.
