On Thursday, a number of media outlets misquoted Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif as saying that Iran is ready to cooperate with the United States on “Iraq” if all the sanctions imposed on Iran are lifted. 
 
“Such reports are not true, and the report on this issue is baseless,” Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said.   
 
Zarif had actually said that Iran is ready to cooperate with the U.S. on “Arak” -- meaning the nuclear facility in that Iranian city -- but some news agencies misquoted him as saying “Iraq”.
