President Hassan Rouhani’s letter is as follows:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

Dear Dr Zarif,

Minister of Foreign Affairs,

Hello,

I read your resignation dated February 25. Your special attention to the position of the foreign ministry and the foreign minister as the highest official responsible for implementing the country’s foreign policy is understandable and accepted by my.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is responsible for foreign relations and provides the basis for the realisation of national security and interests.

I appreciate your hard work during your term bearing the heavy responsibility of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 11th and 12th Governments, and since you are ‘honest, brave, courageous and pious’, as Supreme Leader put it, and since I believe you are at the forefront of resisting the intense pressures of the United States, I consider accepting your resignation against our country’s interests, and I reject it.

I am completely aware of the pressures on the foreign ministry, the government and even the President, who is elected by people. We will remain loyal until the end because of the vow we have made with God and the people, and I am confident that we will overcome this hard stage with God’s help.

The achievements of the foreign ministry, only in the recent months, in confronting the conspiracies of the United States in New York, Vienna, Brussels, the Hague, Warsaw, Munich, etc., and political victories at regional and international levels have been remarkable. The happiness of the sworn enemies of this people, such as the Zionist Regime, over your resignation is the best evidence of the success of Mohammad Javad Zarif, and the biggest reason for the continuation of your work as the “Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Islamic Republic of Iran”. You are trusted by me, the entire Islamic Republic system, and especially the Supreme Leader. Stay on your path with strength, tact, and courage, and God will be alongside its righteous servants.

Hassan Rouhani

President of the Islamic Republic of Iran
