Iranian FM Holds ‘Urgent’ Meeting With His Predecessors

Thursday, 11/10/2022

Iran’s Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian says he held a meeting with his four predecessors, including Mohammad Javad Zarif, without disclosing any details.

In a tweet late on Wednesday the Iranian top diplomat said, “in a friendly meeting I hosted the former foreign ministers of the Islamic Republic of Iran Kamal Kharazi, Manuchehr Mottaki, Ali Akbar Salehi and Mohammad Javad Zarif.”

Further he added that “We are determined to accomplish the objectives of the diplomacy in realizing the greatest interests of the nation by relying on collective wisdom.”

However, Amir-Abdollahian did not mention anything about the agenda of the meeting and the issues raised.

Some Iranian dailies, however, called the meeting “an urgent” one not giving any other details.

The meeting comes as negotiations to revive 2015 nuclear deal are in a deadlock, with the United States openly stating that the talks are not its focus at the moment.

The recent protests that have swept the country are having an undisputable impact on the chances of the revival of the JCPOA as it is getting more difficult for Washington and the West to negotiate with the Islamic Republic when anti-regime demonstrators are subjected to a brutal cracked down in the streets.

The United States and its European allies have warned Tehran to respect fundamental human and civil rights of the protesters and are threatening more sanctions.

It seems that the incumbent minister is seeking help from his predecessors to get the regime out of the impasse, but major policies in Iran are set by Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei.
