Iran’s president-elect has refused to meet with Joe Biden. In a press conference this week, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said he wouldn’t meet with Biden even if the U.S. rejoined the nuclear accord.

Additionally, Raisi called on Biden to remove the sanctions against Iran, adding that Iran’s ballistic missile program was not up for discussion. “We support the negotiations that guarantee our national interests…America should immediately return to the deal and fulfill its obligations under the deal,” said Raisi, who is currently under U.S. sanctions.

This comes after President Trump withdrew the U.S. from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action agreement in 2018.

Raisi won the presidency last week, claiming victory amid a scandal-ridden election which saw a record low voter turnout.
