This file photo shows Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif boarding a plane on a foreign visit.Iran’s top diplomat is in India as part of international consultations aimed at discussing continued mutual cooperation with world countries now that the US has quit a multi-lateral nuclear accord with the Islamic Republic.
Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif’s plane touched down in New Delhi on Monday, with a delegation of political and economic officials tagging along.

Some of the consultations have taken place so far, and some will happen in the future, he said at the airport.

"We maintain extensive consultations with New Delhi as a regional political and economic partner these days, especially now that the United States has violated the JCPOA," he added.

Zarif was referring to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action between Iran and the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council -- the US, the UK, France, Russia, China, and Germany.

So far, Zarif has visited China, Russia, and Brussels to address the aftermath of an announcement by Washington this month that it would leave the deal and re-introduce its nuclear-related sanctions against Tehran.

Zarif also expressed “certainty” that the Indo-Iranian ties will continue to grow as before “since the countries enjoy various areas of cooperation, especially in the field of energy."

"In other areas, like trade and transportation too, there lies good ground for cooperation,” he said. 


Some other Iranian officials have also been visiting various countries to discuss post-US withdrawal cooperation.
