President-elect Donald Trump should remain committed to a key international nuclear deal with Iran, the country's foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, said on Wednesday morning.

In July 2015, the U.S., China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom and the EU reached a deal with Iran, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. According to the U.S. Department of State, the deal would "ensure that Iran's nuclear program will be exclusively peaceful."

Reuters, citing the Tasnim news agency, reported Zarif as stating that the U.S. should "fulfil its commitments in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action as a multilateral international agreement."
