"The government has committed itself to continuing these negotiations based on providing maximum national interests," the Iranian government spokesman said. "If the United States returns to its commitments, the negotiators will inform the higher authorities of the situation for a decision and will not wait for the next administration."
Regarding the Iranian elections, Rabiei saw that holding these elections and the people's turnout was a great rejection of the imposed sanctions, adding, "Those who imposed the sanctions, those who call for the imposition of sanctions, and those who incited absentation have failed, and their masks have fallen."
