President Trump Just Made Iran's Mullahs an Offer

Still, Ali Akbar Nategh Nouri, a senior cleric and member of the influential Expediency Council, said Trump's offer should not be rejected out of hand. "They are having a hard time right now".

Trump condemned the deal in part because it did not cover Iran's ballistic missile program and involvement in Middle East conflicts.

Trump has since ordered the imposition of "the highest level" sanctions, some of which will go into effect on August 6 and the rest-including key sanctions on oil, energy, and banking-on November 4.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he supported the President's willingness to meet with Iran, but in an apparent divergence from the President's stance he listed a series of conditions that would first have to be met. But I ended the Iran deal. It is getting ever clearer that these USA measures are no longer merely aimed at changing Iran's behavior but instead at regime change. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo joined Trump's attack on Iran last week during a speech to Iranian-Americans in the USA, calling Teheran's leadership corrupt and comparing it to the mafia.

Hours before Trump's statement, Iran's foreign ministry ruled out the possibility of negotiations with the US government over the enduring bilateral problems.

Rouhani and some senior military commanders have said Iran could disrupt oil shipments from Gulf states through the Strait of Hormuz if Washington tries to choke off Iranian oil exports.

"Based on our bad experiences in negotiations with America and based on USA officials' violation of their commitments, it is natural that we see no value in his proposal", Kamal Kharrazi was quoted as saying by the semi-official Fars news agency. "BE CAUTIOUS!" the president raged on Twitter on July 22. The company stated it has temporarily halted all oil shipments through the Red Sea's Bab El-Mandeb strait.

"It seems natural that we turn down his offer with regard to bitter experiences we learned from pervious negotiations with America and its repetitive breaches of obligations", added Karrazi who was Iran's foreign minister from 1997 to 2005 under the Khatami administration.

"I do believe that they will probably end up wanting to meet". While Trump drew bipartisan criticism for his Putin summit - specifically for initially appearing to accept Putin's denial of USA election meddling - the president maintained Monday that they had a "great meeting" and stressed that he's willing to meet with "anybody".

Mr Mnangagwa tweeted that Zimbabweans should vote with "peace in [their] hearts". "We will sink or swim together", he added. Polls give incumbent Emmerson Mnangagwa of the Zulu-PF party a slight lead over the MDC Alliance candidate Nelson Chamisa .

He said such a meeting would be the "appropriate thing to do", and would come neither from a position of strength nor weakness.

I don't think so. "If we could work something out that's meaningful, not the waste of paper the other deal was, I would certainly be willing to meet".

Earlier, the commander-in-chief warned that Iran must "never be allowed" to possess nuclear weapons.

Others in Iran were more receptive.

"Based on our bad experiences in negotiations with America and based on USA officials' violation of their commitments, it is natural that we see no value in his proposal", Kamal Kharrazi was quoted as saying by the semi-official Fars news agency.

One possible opportunity for the two leaders to meet would be during the United Nations General Assembly in late September.

The imminent return of full sanctions has raised fears the country will tip into a major economic crisis, with the currency already losing two-thirds of its value since the start of the year.

"To the regime, prosperity, security and freedom for the Iranian people are acceptable casualties in the march to fulfill the revolution", Pompeo said.

Iran and other signatories have been working to find a way to salvage the nuclear agreement, even as the United States has begun reimposing some sanctions on Iran.
