In an interview with Oksana Boyko, host of RT’s Worlds Apart, the top Iranian diplomat said it would be a mistake to think that his personal relationship with Biden could help trigger a major diplomatic breakthrough between the two longtime rivals.
Zarif said his history with Biden can be traced back nearly 20 years, when he served as Iran’s envoy to the UN. But he insisted that his interactions with the Delaware senator were strictly professional.
Zarif said that US policy towards his country has had devastating humanitarian consequences, but has also given Iran an “advantage” during the Covid-19 crisis, as it forced the Islamic Republic to develop its own pharmaceutical industry.
