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.

Jason Momoa's 2019 Oscars suit was custom-made by Karl Lagerfeld
Momoa's look, courtesy of Fendi, was custom-designed for him by the fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld before he died earlier this week , at age 85.

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.
