TEHRAN – Iran will not play into the hands of the United States in the face of Washington’s provocative actions to derail the July 2015 nuclear deal, a former Iranian diplomat has said.

While the Trump administration has from the onset showed that it is trying to provoke Iran to walk out of the deal, Iran’s incoming administration will do its best to safeguard the implementation of the deal, Ali Khorram, former ambassador to the European headquarters of the United Nations, told ILNA on Friday.
