The US' decision to back Prime Minister Mohammad Mossadegh's overthrow 65 years ago in concert with the United Kingdom has cast a lasting shadow over relations between Washington and Tehran.

"I thought that the Americans had learned that lesson".

"Iran can respond to Europe's political will when it is accompanied by practical measures", said Zarif. It provides for the lifting of sanctions imposed on Iran in connection with its nuclear program. "It is extremely important to maintain this multilateral agreement, approved by the UN Security Council, aimed at strengthening regional and global security and the nuclear non-proliferation regime", Putin said. Well, you ought to pay for your security.
