(Worthy News) - President Trump’s comment Monday that he was ready to meet with Iranian leaders came just hours after the regime’s foreign ministry rejected the idea of negotiations with the U.S., saying Washington had proven to be 'untrustworthy' and dismissing reports speculating that mediation efforts may be underway.
Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman, Bahram Qassemi, on Monday dismissed as “media speculation” any suggestion that Iran and the U.S. could hold talks, or that the Omani foreign minister’s visit to the U.S. was linked to the issue.
After the “illegal” withdrawal from the JCPOA and the bringing to bear of economic pressures against Iran, “there are no conditions for such a discussion at all,” state media quoted Qassemi as telling a briefing.
“The U.S. has proved to be untrustworthy and unreliable.” [ Source: CNS News (Read More...) ]
