DUBAI, Sept 21 — Iran’s hardline President Ebrahim Raisi struck a defiant tone today at the United Nations by demanding guarantees that the United States will not again abandon Tehran’s 2015 nuclear deal with major powers.

Raisi also said Tehran wanted former US President Donald Trump to face trial for the assassination of Iran’s top Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani who was killed in 2020 in Iraq in a US drone attack. — Reuters
