Iran Rejects Trump’s Offer of Talks as ‘Humiliation’

Trump presser 07302018

After a meeting with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte at the White House on Monday, the United States president expressed his willingness to reopen negotiations with Iran in an unusually soft tone.

An adviser to Rouhani said Tuesday, though, the Iranian leader would mandate a USA return to the landmark nuclear pact, known formally as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, as a requirement for any discussions. "It was a ridiculous deal", Trump said.

Other signatories are working with Iran to try to save the agreement while Washington begins reimposing sanctions on Tehran.

On Monday he said he could meet with the Iranians with "no preconditions," adding that "if they want to meet, I'll meet anytime they want". He pointed to his recent one-on-ones with North Korea's Kim Jong Un and Russia's Vladimir Putin as examples of the benefits of such get-togethers. It was the first time the presidents of the two countries had spoken since the 1979 Islamic Revolution and the storming of the US Embassy, which led to the severing of diplomatic ties.

Rouhani typically attends the meetings in NY.

The US and Iran have become more hostile since America's withdrawal from the landmark nuclear accord.

The suspects could also face federal charges in connection with breaching regulations around transporting sharks. Police impounded the truck that was used as the getaway vehicle on Monday at 5.30pm, KENS5 reported.

Trump had zeroed in on the threat posed by Iran in recent weeks, focusing on Tehran instead of the dangers posed by North Korea or Russian Federation.

As a result of Trump's decision to withdraw from the agreement, some previously lifted US sanctions will be reimposed on Iran over the next few months.

In May, Mr Trump withdrew the United States from the 2015 worldwide agreement created to deny Tehran the ability to build nuclear agreements.

"I believe in meeting", Trump responded. "Now all of those countries except the USA are on Iran's side, wanting to stick with the deal and keep doing business".

So I am skeptical about Trump's ability to pivot to diplomacy with Iran, but that is not to say that a better deal can not be achieved.

"If the President's going to sit down with them without any preconditions, he must think he's a genius, because if he thinks he can pull off a meeting with the supreme leader of Iran without any prior discussions - good luck".

European signatories to the deal have been searching for ways to salvage it but cautioned Tehran that they may not be able to persuade many investors not to bolt from business with Iran to avoid USA punishment. Unlike the Iran nuclear deal, this proposal was not exclusively focused on nuclear matters: The Iranians offered to help stabilize Iraq, disarm Hezbollah and collaborate against all terrorist organizations (especially al Qaeda).

Using capitalised letters he warned of dire consequences "THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED" if Iran threatened America. Former deputy secretary of state Wendy Sherman tweeted "Mr. President, Iran just might have a precondition- rejoin the community of nations in support of the JCPOA...."

The United States Treasury Department has warned it will impose sanctions on every country that failed to stop importing oil from Iran after the November 4 deadline it has set.

Several Iranian public figures said it was impossible to imagine negotiations with Washington after it tore up the nuclear deal in May.

"Why would the Iranians negotiate with an administration that is internally inconsistent?" said Ali Vaez, the director of the Iran Project at the International Crisis Group.
