Pompeo: Trump is ready to meet Rouhani without preconditions.
BAGHDAD (NINA) - US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that President Donald Trump may meet with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani at the next UN meeting without preconditions. At a news conference, Pompeo echoed comments made by Trump on Monday: "He is ready to meet without preconditions." The Trump Administration is exercising what it calls a campaign of extreme pressure to curb Iranian activities to develop nuclear weapons, through diplomatic and economic measures such as sanctions. Rouhani denies Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons and said it would not enter talks with the United States unless Washington lifted sanctions it re-imposed on Tehran after Trump pulled out of a 2015 nuclear deal with world powers. However, the White House insists that talks will not be held on pre-set terms./ End
