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”.
