Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that even if the United States returns to Iran’s nuclear program agreement, there is no possibility of a meeting between the presidents of Iran and the United States.
Iranian Foreign Minister’s statement comes after US President Donald Trump’s statement that he would like to meet Iranian President Hassan Rouhani at the right time in the next few weeks.
“I said during a visit to France that the meeting between Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and US President Donald Trump cannot be imagined,” the Iranian Foreign Minister said.
The Iranian Foreign Minister further said that even if the United States returned to the agreement on Iran’s nuclear program, with which the United States had disassociated last year, we would not talk to the US again.
Javad Zarif said that what has been discussed between the US and French personnel in this regard is between them. During this visit, I said that he would not have any meeting with US personnel. ‘
US President Donald Trump yesterday said he would like to meet with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani at the right time in the next few weeks to ease tensions between Washington and Tehran.
Donald Trump’s statement came at a time when Iran’s Foreign Minister Javad Zarif made a brief and unannounced visit to France on the sidelines of the G-7 Summit in France on Sunday.
French President Emmanuel Macron, who has been playing a role in reducing tensions and preventing the nuclear deal from ending, says that he has invited Javad Zarif to discuss the possible solution after talks with Iranian officials. Moreover, he had already informed President Trump about the plan.
President Macron added that he believes that “conditions for meeting” have been established in the next few weeks between Trump and Rouhani.
Emmanuel Macron said, “Nothing is fixed yet and matters are weak but some real progress has been made in discussing technical issues.”
He further said that he had told Rouhani, “If they accept a meeting with President Trump, I think there may be a deal.”
