Iran Foreign Minister: White House Mischaracterizing Nuclear Deal

Overplaying commitments, underplaying concessions

|

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif insisted Wednesday that the Obama administration mischaracterizes concessions by his side in the six-month nuclear deal with Iran, telling CNN in an exclusive interview that "we did not agree to dismantle anything."

Zarif told CNN Chief National Security Correspondent Jim Sciutto that terminology used by the White House to describe the agreement differed from the text agreed to by Iran and the other countries in the talks—the United States, Britain, France, Russia, China and Germany.
