Iran Foreign Minister Resigns Hours After Meeting With US Peace Delegation

Iran Foreign Minister Resigns Hours After Meeting With US Peace Delegation

Medea Benjamin, Ann Wright

We are deeply saddened by the resignation of Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif on Monday afternoon, which occurred just hours after he met with our 28-person American peace delegation led by CODEPINK: Women for Peace. Zarif talked at length about how dissatisfied the Iranian people had become with the Iran nuclear agreement, and the pressure this put on him. He said that when the agreement was signed in 2015 over 80 percent of the Iranian people supported it, as they hoped it would bring Iran back into the international community and improve their economy.

Trump must pay for the damage he’s done to people who are undeserving of it.

If the US launches a military attack to eliminate Maduro and put in their puppet, Trump and those in power will get the taste of blood that will make them want more. War with Iran will be much more likely. Organizing against war is crucial at this time.
