Iran says U.S. must return to nuclear deal before meeting with Trump

The Strategic Council on Foreign Relations was set up by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to help formulate long-term policies for Iran. We got our prisoners back. "It could be a test for us".

Trump stating he has no preconditions for talks with Iran seems to put him at odds with Pompeo and potentially other top advisers.

"I believe in meetings", the United States president told reporters at the White House.

Trump said on Monday that he was willing to meet "any time" with Iran's leaders without preconditions.

Why did the USA withdraw from the nuclear deal? The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) commander, Qassem Soleimani, chimed in as well, claiming that President Trump had failed in Operation Enduring freedom and would get the same result should the US attack Iran. Asked if he had any preconditions for such a meeting, Trump replied, "No preconditions".

The head of Iran's most powerful military body on Tuesday rejected U.S. President Donald Trump's offer of direct talks with Iranian leaders, saying Tehran never would allow talks with what he called the "Great Satan".

Britain, along with China, Germany, France, Russia and the European Union, are negotiating with Iran on preserving the deal.

What do the United States and Iran disagree on?

"US can only blame itself for pulling out & leaving the table". In fact, both Riyadh and Abu Dhabi outspend Iran on weaponryby a factor of five and two, respectively, despite having far smaller populations. But on July 30, he said he "would certainly meet with Iran if they wanted to meet".

"Trump understands that he does not have the capacity to wage war with Iran, but due to historic mistrust, diplomatic ties have been destroyed", said Falahatpisheh, adding that this left no choice but to work towards reducing tensions.

Mourinho hopeful Manchester United will sign one more player
The Sun cites one case of an unnamed player in a panic asking the TV channel he gave an interview to erase an answer he gave them. United have been linked with defenders Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire and Yerry Mina as well as Chelsea star Willian.

Pompeo will be in Singapore for the forum and related events on Friday and Saturday.

He continued, writing in all capital letters, that: "WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH".

Trump would have to agree to return to the internationally-backed nuclear deal with Iran and also would have to suspend new sanctions against Tehran before any talks, Hamid Abutalebi, an aide to Iranian President Hassan Rohani, said on Twitter.

Back in May, Trump unilaterally withdrew Washington from the JCPOA despite objections from the other signatories to the multilateral accord. Iran had showed its openness to dialogue in the past, particularly with the phone call between Rouhani and Trump's predecessor Barack Obama in 2013. A second, more robust wave of oil-related sanctions is set to snap back November 4.

"It is hard to see the Iranians... being agreeable to such a meeting with someone who only a few weeks ago basically sank an agreement with which they were so pleased". Whenever the USA has managed to change Iranian policies, it has been as a result of offering valuable incentives and concessions.

Motahari told the state news agency IRNA, "If Trump had not withdrawn from the nuclear deal and not imposed (new) sanctions on Iran, there would be no problem with negotiations with America".

Christopher Hill, a former lead USA negotiator with Pyongyang, told MEE at the time that the statement - after the talks - could not be called an agreement.

"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.

"If this negotiation (is) carried out in any form, then it will be considered as surrender, and the Iranian nation will not surrender", he said.
