Iran said yesterday that if US President Donald Trump wants to negotiate after withdrawing from the international nuclear agreement to curb Tehran’s nuclear activities he should initiate the call.
A spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry Bahram Qassemi said Monday that Trump said last week that after the United States increases sanctions on Iran “at a certain point they’re going to call me and say ‘let’s make a deal,’ and we’ll make a deal”. However, Qassemi said that “maybe one day he will call Tehran and ask for negotiations. This is more likely”.
The top Iranian leadership rejects talks with the United States.
Other signatories of the 2015 deal, Germany, Britain, France, Russia, China and the EU have been negotiating with Iran on how to preserve the agreement without Washington.
