Last week when 47 republicans had written a letter to Iran warning them of making any nuclear deal with President Barack Obama they had actually made a spectacle of themselves not only in US but all over the world. According to the letter if Iran does make any nuclear deal with Obama that deal will surely see an end if any Republican candidate becomes the next man in power i.e. The President.
In reply to the letter written by the Republicans Iranian foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif delivered a letter showing how immature they have acted and that they not only understand international law but they aren’t even fully cognizant of the nuances of their own constitution when it comes to Presidential powers in the conduct of foreign policy.
‘The world is not the US and the conduct of the interstate relations is governed by international law and not by US domestic law. The authors may not fully understand that in international law governments represent the entirety of their respective states, are responsible for the conduct of foreign affairs and may not invoke their internal law as justification for failure to perform their international obligations. Or Change of administration does not in any way relieve the next administration from the international obligations undertaken by its predecessor in a possible agreement about Iran’s peaceful nuclear programme. I wish enlighten the author that if the next administration revokes any agreement with the stroke of a pen, as they boast, it will have simply committed a blatant violation of international law’.
