Trump responds to Iran’s Rouhani

Washington, AUg9 : US President Donald Trump has responded to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani ‘s statement in which he specifically stated that  Tehran favours talks with Washington but the United States must first lift sanctions it imposed on the Islamic republic.

“Iran is in serious financial trouble. They want desperately to talk to the U.S., but are given mixed signals from all of those purporting to represent us, including President Macron of France,” Trump said.


“…I know Emmanuel means well, as do all others, but nobody speaks for the United States but the United States itself. No one is authorized in any way, shape, or form, to represent us!,” he said.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran favours talks and negotiations and, if the US really wants to talk, before anything else it should lift all sanctions,” Rouhani said in remarks aired live on state television.

“Whether they want to come into the JCPOA or not, it?s up to them,” said Rouhani, referring to the 2015 nuclear deal known formally as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

The Iranian foreign minister on Monday confirmed reports that he had turned down an offer from a US senator to meet President Donald Trump at the White House.
