Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif attends a meeting

Iran's Foreign Minister Mahammed Javad Zarif announces resignation from his post in a statement on his Instagram account. "Be happy and worthy", Zarif wrote in his Instagram blog.

"I highly appreciate the graciousness of the courageous Iranian people and respected officials over the past 67 months", Zarif wrote in the statement, which was posted to his verified Instagram account.

Zarif had become known in many places as the face of Iran because of his leading role in negotiating the nuclear deal with the United States and other world powers. I sincerely apologize for the inability to continue the service and for all the shortcomings during the service.

Prior to becoming foreign minister, Zarif served as Iran's ambassador to the United Nations between August 2002 and July 2007.

Sony reveals flagship Xperia 1 with 4K HDR OLED display
Like numerous flagship phones this year, the Xperia 1 runs Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 mobile platform and ships with Android 9 Pie. The Xperia L3 should be available in stores already in single SIM and dual SIM versions, although prices haven't been unveiled.

However, the US-Iranian relations deteriorated in May 2018 when US President Donald Trump announced his country's decision to withdraw from the JCPOA and reimpose its sanctions on Tehran that had been lifted under the agreement.

Zarif was born in Iran but came to the United States in the late 1970s for secondary school.

Iran's deputy foreign minister confirmed the authenticity of the post. Following Zarif's post, Rouhani's chief of staff Mahmoud Vaezi "strongly denied" the reports that Zarif's resignation had been accepted. However it can only take effect once President Hassan Rouhani accepts it.
