.@JZarif Iran has a plurality of opinion, but a single foreign policy. #CFRLive
.@JZarif I sggstd a package tht everyone now wishes was accepted. Are sanctions so important that they should prevent a resolution? #CFRLive
.@JZarif: In Iran our economy & people suffered. What does US see as the benefit of the sanctions policy? What has the US gained? #CFRLive

.@JZarif: Re #Syria: We need to put conditions on how election should be run, not on who should run in election. Process is flawed. #CFRLive
.@JZarif: There's an inherent flaw in the image the US created for itself. #CFRLive
.@JZarif: You cannot fight ISIS and the government in Damascus together. #CFRLive

.@JZarif: We need new tools to deal with these new realities. #CFRLive #ISIS

.@JZarif: I wouldn't call it the Islamic State. But it is a sophisticated terrorist organization. #CFRLive
.@JZarif: Iran has been a responsible power in the region. We play a central role in dealing with ISIS. #CFRLive
