Mahmoud Vaezi, the chief of staff of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, refuted media reports that the country's president had accepted Zarif's resignation, ONA reports citing Sputniknews.

Most Iranian lawmakers have signed a letter asking President Hassan Rouhani for Foreign Minister Javad Zarif to continue his job, the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) reported, quoting a member of parliament.

Shortly after unexpected announcement of his resignation, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif spoke about the country's foreign policy in an interview published by the Jomhuri Eslami newspaper.

"The deadly poison for foreign policy is for foreign policy to become an issue of party and factional fighting," Zarif said.
