Kerry, Zarif spoke last week after fresh Iran-related sanctions
The U.S. and Iranian foreign ministers last week discussed the importance of carrying out the November 24 Iran nuclear deal after Washington blacklisted 19 companies, people and vessels for dealing with Tehran, a U.S. official said on Monday. The U.S. sanctions, imposed under existing U.S. law, drew criticism from Iranian officials and raised questions about the November 24 agreement under which Iran agreed to curb its nuclear program for six months in exchange for limited sanctions relief. "The conversation was focused on the way forward." Under the November 24 agreement, the United States committed not to impose new sanctions on Iran. The U.S. State Department said it told Iranian negotiators during talks before the November 24 deal that it would enforce existing U.S. sanctions laws and gave Iranian officials a general advance warning about last week's blacklisting action.
