Iran FM: Talks Will Continue Despite US Sanctions

•, by Jason Ditz
 In a posting made today via Facebook, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif confirmed that the ongoing P5+1 talks with Iran would resume, despite recent US sanctions which halted the talks on Friday.
The US announced the sanctions late last week, targeting companies trading with Iran. The argument was that this technically didn’t violate a pledge not to impose new sanctions on Iran, though Iran withdrew from the talks at the time and Russia termed the US move a violation of the “spirit” of the pact.

In an interview, Zarif said the sanctions had “derailed” the process briefly, but that it was not dead, and that Iran remained committed to getting the talks back on the right track.
