Trump rejected Iran’s terms for direct talks

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — US President Donald Trump rejected Iran’s resumption of talks, noting that there will be no lifting of sanctions.

“They want negotiations. They want a deal,” Trump told reporters. He added that “Iran has enormous potential,” and reiterated that the United States “does not seek a regime change.”

“I am grateful for the involvement of President (France) Emmanuel Macron, but we do not work through President Macron, people have business with us directly. We can deal directly,” said the American leader.

Answering a question from a journalist, how does he assess Iran’s demand for the United States to return to a nuclear deal to start negotiations, Trump said that Iranians are talking about lifting sanctions. “They say that (they won’t start negotiations – ed.) Until we go on a number of things, such as lifting the sanctions, but this will not happen.

They did not say in the way you formulated it, but the ultimate goal is the same – this is not will happen,” Trump emphasized.

Earlier, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that if the US lifts all sanctions, they can, as before, engage in dialogue within the 5 + 1 group.
