Talks between Rouhani and the Swiss government focused on stabilizing the nuclear deal following the withdrawal of the United States, it said in a statement.

Switzerland pledged to work to preserve the flow of humanitarian goods to Iran, despite any resumption of U.S. sanctions, while urging Tehran to recognize Israel’s right to exist.
