Iranian Foreign Minister: U.S. and Iran Aren’t So Different

On ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos, Iranian foreign minister Mohammed Javad Zarif told the host that the U.S. and Iran have more in common than one might think. “Iran and the United States are similar in many ways, and one is that we both have pluralistic societies where differences of views exist and differences of views are aired, and I think it’s very healthy,” he said.

Zarif added that when it comes to nuclear capabilities, the nations’ goals are in harmony. “I told them that having an Iran that does not have nuclear weapons is not just your goal; it’s first and foremost our goal,” he said, discussing nuclear talks with EU nations.

Stephanopoulos seemed unmoved. “As you know, there’s a lot of skepticism about that,” he said.
