Raisi's statements came in a meeting with the new Swiss Ambassador to Tehran, Nadin Olivier Rey, who was presenting her credentials to him.

The Iranian president added that the US-European move to propose a resolution against his country during the IAEA's Board of Governors meeting violated "the spirit of negotiations and agreement" and constituted "paradoxical behaviour", according to IRNA.
