A tweet from Iran President Hassan Rouhani’s official account was deleted on Monday just moments after he indicated a deal on the Islamic republic's nuclear programme had been reached.
“#IranDeal is the victory of diplomacy & mutual respect over the outdated paradigm of exclusion & coercion. And this is a good beginning,” the message said. Having sought to end the nuclear crisis and, with it the international sanctions that have paralysed Iran’s economy, Rouhani’s fate is often seen as inextricably linked to the negotiations.
With officials in Vienna saying the chances of an accord being agreed on Monday were slim, the tweet swiftly disappeared from Rouhani’s Twitter feed. The President’s sole English-language Twitter account, a parallel one in Persian was also deleted, is thought to be run by his media department.
