Nationwide safety adviser Jake Sullivan mentioned Sunday it was too quickly to inform if the election of a brand new president in Iran would result in a change for higher or worse in nuclear talks with the Islamic state.
Talking Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Sullivan mentioned, “It is arduous to take a position concerning the inner dynamics in Iran on a query like that. What I’d say is the final word choice for whether or not or not to return into the deal lies with Iran’s supreme chief. He was the identical particular person earlier than this election as he’s after the election.”
Ebrahim Raisi, the hardline chief of Iran’s judiciary, scored a decisive victory in its presidential election held Friday, although turnout was decrease than normal, apparently due to widespread apathy and dissatisfaction with the restricted poll selections permitted by supreme chief Ali Khamenei and his guardian council.
