KUWAIT CITY(IAMINKUWAIT): Foreign Minister of Iran Mohammad Javad Zarif has announced his resignation, said a media source late Monday.
According to Iran News Agency (IRNA), an Iranian spokesman confirmed the resignation of Zarif after a post on Social Media quote the senior diplomat as he offered an apology for his "inability to continue his service".
Zarif occupied the position since 2013 in the government of President Hassan Rouhani.
He led his country's negotiation team at the (5+1) group meetings in 2015, which lead to the Iran nuclear deal.
Zarif received criticism and enormous pressure for striking the deal within Iran especially after the US Administration, led by President Donald Trump, withdrew last May.
