Iran’s delegation is in New York this week for the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly.
The gathering comes at a critical time, just days after a major attack on Saudi Arabia’s oil industry. The United States has accused Iran of being behind it – accusations Tehran has denied.
In a one-on-one interview with CGTN’s Asieh Namdar, Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif addresses key issues including U.S. sanctions, the Yemen War, the 2015 nuclear deal and tensions in the Middle East.
