Trump says ready to meet Iran's Rouhani

Casey GreeneAug 01, 2018

Trump, who pulled the US out of the 2015 worldwide agreement to restrain Iran's alleged nuclear weapons development in exchange for relief from economic sanctions against Tehran, said Monday that he would be willing to meet with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

Responding to US President Donald Trump's surprise offer of talks without preconditions, Zarif wrote: "Iran & US had two years of talks".

"No preconditions. They want to meet?"

Trump says during a joint news conference with Italy's leader that he believes in meetings and is pointing to the benefits of recent meetings with North Korea's Kim Jong Un and Russia's Vladimir Putin. "I do believe they will probably end up wanting to meet and I'm ready to meet at anytime they want to", Trump said.

But the head of Iran's Strategic Council on Foreign Relations reportedly said Iran saw "no value" in Trump's proposal to meet.

Another politician, Mostafa Kavakebian, called the President Trump "untrustworthy" and signaled that any talks at this time would make Iran appear weak.

The foreign ministry spokesman said Trump's offer to negotiate with Tehran contradicted his actions as Washington has imposed sanctions on Iran and put pressure on other countries to avoid business with the Islamic Republic.

With the first United States sanctions due to come into effect on Monday, the economy in Iran has already been hit, giving rise to growing fears of prolonged economic suffering. We got our prisoners back.

Such a meeting would be the first between USA and Iranian leaders since before the 1979 Iranian revolution.

"I hope it works out well with Iran".

But with the United States pulling out of the 2015 nuclear deal in May and set to reimpose full sanctions from August 6, most of Iran's officials are unimpressed by the offer.

Iran and other signatories have been working to find a way to salvage the nuclear agreement, even as the United States has begun reimposing some sanctions on Iran.

The United States is going after Iran in a rather smart fashion despite the childish rhetoric being traded on social media. "After it arrogantly and unilaterally withdrew from the nuclear agreement, how can it be trusted?" He noted his country's "bad experiences in negotiations with America" as well as "U.S. officials' violation of their commitments".

'I'll meet with anybody, ' he said. So lastly, even if they were to meet, why would Rouhani want to negotiate a new nuclear deal with the USA given that the Americans have turned their back on an already existing deal?

Trump has predicted that the Iranians will seek a new deal from him because the regime seems to be in trouble.

Jafari is the same commander who said in November that Iran does not need to extend its range of missiles because the Islamic Republic already has the ability to reach far enough to strike American forces deployed in the Middle East if the nation is faced with USA aggression.

The top US diplomat had released 12 demands for talks with Iran in May, following Mr. Trump's withdrawal from the nuclear deal.

Skepticism was rife in Iran over possible talks, with one lawmaker saying negotiations would be a "humiliation".
