Iran’s first vice president, Eshaq Jahangiri, reported on Saturday that Tehran wish to see a change in Washington’s destructive policies, after that Democrat Joe Biden won the US presidential election on the current President Donald Trump.
Jahangiri related in a tweet: I hope we will see a change in the destructive policies of the United States…finally…the era of Trump and his adventurous and belligerent team is over.
In fact, tensions between Iran and the US have increased since Trump’s withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal and reimposed severe sanctions on Iran in 2018 as part of a maximum pressure campaign.
On his part, Biden, who was vice president during the term of President Barack Obama when the nuclear deal was reached, has promised to rejoin the accord if Iran returns to obeying with it.
Jahangiri also added that the people of Iran will not forget the impact of the Trump administration’s sanctions on their lives, and not the killing of top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani.
Tensions have strongly increased in January when a US airstrike on Baghdad killed Soleimani, who is the top commander of the elite Quds Force, the overseas arm of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.
Thus, Iran hopes that during the period of Biden administration, the country would be able to save its currency from record lows and its weakening economy from further failure.
