"We said this clearly that we will use the Americans' practical behavior as the basis of our judgment," Amir Abdollahian was quoted as saying.

"Contradictory signals" that the Americans send through media or diplomatic channels do not serve as the basis for Iran's final decision-making, he also told Iranian state TV.

The Iranian foreign minister made the remarks before leaving New York where he had attended the UN General Assembly meeting.

For the revival of the 2015 nuclear deal, Iran has urged the United States for the removal of the sanctions imposed by the former US administration and implementation of all its commitments under the accord.
