Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Iran to the United Nations said on Saturday that given the current situation in the US, it is unlikely that the outgoing President Donald Trump will be a source of concern in the final days of his term, especially on the issue of Iran's nuclear deal.

Iran Press/Iran News: On the US military activities in the West Asia region and concerns on Trump's likely resort to nuclear weapons, Majid Takht-Ravanchi added that Trump has done a lot of strange things over the years which gives reasons for concerns that he may do something unexpected, even in the days leading up to the end of his presidency.

"No issue should be ruled out due to his unpredictability, but given the sensitivities of his rivals towards Trump's possible decisions and actions, he will not go in this direction. By the way, we must remain vigilant," he said.

Pointing to the strategic approach of the next US administration towards Iran, Takht-Ravanchi said that the different governments in the US, whether Democratic or Republican, do not differ much in their foreign policies. "Of course, the Trump government followed unusual policies and its actions both toward Iran and other countries were unpredictable for many observers inside and outside the US," he said.

"In general, one should not expect fundamental differences in US policy toward Iran," he said, noting that sanctions against Iran in various US Democratic or Republican administrations have continued.

It seems that the Biden administration would continue the same trend, although differences in tactics may be seen in some areas, Iran's UN envoy said.
