Iran Rules Out Rouhani-Trump Meeting at UN

Iran Rules Out Rouhani-Trump Meeting at UN

Iran's Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Sunday called the U.S. allegations "meaningless" and said they were meant to justify actions against Iran. Trump said he is against war. I would certainly meet with Iran if they wanted to meet. We want to find definitively who did this. "I'm ready to meet anytime they want to". Trump said certain conditions had to be met for talks with the Iranians. Gidley said, "That's not changed".

"Having failed at "max pressure", US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo turning to "max deceit", Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote on Twitter on Sunday, in response to Washington's accusations over the Saudi oil attacks. "I don't know if they're ready yet", he said.

Al Jazeera's Dorsa Jabbari, reporting from Tehran, said many in Iran think that the USA is trying to force Iran to the negotiating table through diplomatic tactics. "But the American effort to fundamentally reverse the malign activity of this Islamic republic, this revolutionary force, is going to continue".

June 23, 2019: Trump said he was not looking for war but that Iran can not have a nuclear weapon. "The biggest thing you can talk about are the sanctions, and the sanctions are massive. Good." Chuck Todd, host of NBC's "Meet the Press", asked him, "No pre-conditions?"

"Not as far as I'm concerned". Responding to a question, Trump said the evidence from the recent attack on the oil units in Saudi Arabia indicated foul play from Iran.

The administration has undertaken a "maximum pressure" campaign against Iran, which includes withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal and ratcheting up sanctions. And it's absolutely working.

Q: "So, Secretary Pompeo, for clarity on this, can you foresee a meeting between President Trump and the Iranian leader later this month surrounding the United Nations?".

POMPEO: "The president has made very clear he is prepared to meet with no preconditions".
