The spokesman of Iran’s Foreign Ministry referred in a Twitter message late on Wednesday to the frustration of the outgoing US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo saying that is because his policy of maximum pressure has reached maximum failure.

"The outgoing @SecPompeo's frustration is understandable. His "max pressure policy reached a max failure..." Saeed Khatibzadeh wrote on his Twitter.

Referring to a recent interview he had with the Iranian Press TV news network, the spokesman added, “I discussed w/ @PressTV, the US economic terrorism against Iran, JCPOA's future, Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, situation in Afghanistan & more." He also presented the link of his interview.

Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, earlier on Wednesday, referred to US as a member of the United Nation and expressed Iran's readiness to negotiate terms for US regaining the status of a participant member to the 2015 nuclear deal officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), IRNA reported.

The US withdrew from the JCPOA in May 2018, under an executive order signed by Donald Trump.

"The US is still a UN member," Zarif tweeeted adding, "If it meets its obligations as such under UNSCR 2231, we will fulfill ours under the #JCPOA. If the US then seeks to re-join the JCPOA, we're ready to negotiate terms for it to regain its 'JCPOA Participant' status."

Earlier, the Iranian foreign minister had said if the new US president-elect Joe Biden seeks to return to the JCPOA, he will have to fulfill the US commitments under the deal and lift the sanctions.

"By pulling Washington out of the JCPOA, Trump solely failed to benefit from the deal. This was the mistake Trump and his associates made. If Biden seeks to return to the JCPOA, he will have to fulfill US commitments under the deal and lift the sanctions," Zarif said in an exclusive interview with Iran Daily Newspaper published on Wednesday.
