Iran is for dialogue but the US offer to negotiate contradicts its actions, Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif said, adding that Washington should speak with the Iranian nation in the language of "respect" to get the right response. 
"The onus is on the United States. We never left the negotiating table. We are holding meetings with the remaining members of the [Iran] nuclear deal. It is the United States which decided to leave the negotiating table," ISNA on Wednesday quoted him as saying.
"It is the Americans who should revise their behavior and correct their mistakes," the chief diplomat told reporters in New York before attending a UN General Assembly meeting to commemorate and promote the International Day of Multilateralism and Diplomacy for Peace.
