Democratic challenger Joe Biden has promised to rejoin Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal with six powers if Iran returns to compliance with it

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday the result of the US election was not important for the country’s clerical rulers, but that the next president in Washington should respect international treaties and laws.

“For Tehran, the next US administration’s policies are important and not who wins the US election,” Rouhani said in a televised cabinet meeting.

Democratic challenger Joe Biden has promised to rejoin Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal with six powers if Iran returns to compliance with it.

President Donald Trump abandoned the deal in 2018 and re-imposed sanctions that have crippled Iran’s economy. In retaliation, Iran has gradually reduced compliance with the deal’s terms.

“We want to be respected, not subject to sanctions (by the United States). No matter who wins the US election ... For us, policies and principles are important,” Rouhani said.

Trump has said he wants to strike a new deal with Tehran that would address Iran’s missile programme and support for regional proxies in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen.

Iran has ruled out any negotiations unless Washington first returns to the accord.
