Iranian president says talks possible only if Washington shows 'respect'

Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rouhani at a government meeting

Last month, Ankara agreed to halt its imports of Iranian crude oil amid fears of United States sanctions, but criticised Washington's move to end the oil import waivers granted to Turkey and over half a dozen other countries.

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has lashed out at U.S. "economic terrorism" against the "innocent" Iranian people, saying war and talks will never go together. It has hinted at military confrontation, sending extra forces to the region in response to what it calls Iranian threats.

Reacting to those comments, Khamenei said in a speech broadcast on state television: "The U.S. president recently said Iran can achieve development with its current leaders".

Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, speaks during a news conference with Iraqi Foreign Minister Mohamed Ali Alhakim in Baghdad, Iraq May 26, 2019. "I think that's very smart of them, and I think that's a possibility to happen".

The presidential push for talks with Iran comes as talks with the North Koreans have hit a hard impasse, DiMaggio said.

U.S. President Donald Trump unilaterally pulled Washington out of the nuclear deal in May 2018 and ordered reimposition of sanctions against Iran.

Trump has openly signaled that he wants to talk to Iranian leaders and neutral Switzerland, which has long represented U.S. interests in Iran, could be a convenient emissary.

"This is @realDonaldTrump's "economic war".

Last month, Iran partially suspended its commitments under the 2015 deal on its nuclear programs, known as the JCPOA.

To date, the Iranians have responded to the Trump administration's actions by threatening to intensify their policy of destabilization in the region. The US knows there will be "significant costs" should a full-fledged conflict erupt, he said.

In an interview with ABC TV, broadcast in Tehran on Monday, Zarif passed remarks on the book "The Art of Agreement", written by Donald Trump, in which the usa president describes some trading methods.

But this view constitutes, as is so often is the case with Trump administration's many critics, a fundamental misreading of the president's approach, as I discovered during my recent exclusive interview with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in London.

DiMaggio suggested that the United States and Iran could begin talks on a humanitarian dialogue aimed at the release of prisoners held by both countries.
