Regarding the dialogue with the United States, he reiterated that "we will never go to the negotiation table in this situation" and that lifting sanctions is the premise of the dialogue.
In Iran, parliamentary elections are set to take place on the 21st, but as the nuclear agreement collapses and the economy becomes more difficult, reformist and moderate candidates who support the Rouhani administration, which has emphasized dialogue with the West, have You are exposed to headwinds.
