Japan PM to meet Iran's Khamenei to mediate with US

Report: Iran's President Suggests Willingness To Hold Talks With Washington

Washington, which reimposed sanctions a year ago, has sharply tightened them since the start of May, ordering all countries to halt imports of Iranian oil.

On April 22, the USA administration said in a statement, in a bid to reduce Iran's oil exports to zero, buyers of Iranian oil must stop purchases by May 1 or would face sanctions.

More recently, Trump ordered an aircraft carrier battle group to the region, and announced the deployment of extra forces to the Middle East. On the contrary, as Mr Trump has made clear at his press conference in Japan, where he is now on a state visit, his main objective is to agree a new deal with Tehran, one that, unlike Mr Obama's flawed arrangement, addresses all aspects of Iran's nuclear ambitions, as well as its malign activities in the Middle East.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Sunday that the United States was prepared to engage with Iran without pre-conditions about its nuclear programme but needs to see the country behaving like "a normal nation" first.

In an exclusive interview, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif also told This Week co-Anchor Martha Raddatz that "there will be consequences" if the United States keeps up its economic pressure campaign against Iran's people. "So, I think, given the fact that the president is seeking a way out and does not want a conflict, if Pompeo were to insist on preconditions, it would undermine his own position". "It does not work in dealing with Iran", he said.

"We call this place the Persian Gulf for a reason", said Zarif. Some U.S. officials have spoken of the possibility of new talks. We have a right to defend ourselves. "How do you feel? The United States is sending nuclear ships to our waters, to our vicinity".

He blamed Iranian-backed terrorist militias of being behind a subsequent drone attack on a Saudi oil pipeline. Yet, like the Arab League and Gulf Cooperation Council summits held earlier, the main focus was Iran.

"My guess is probably what PM Abe is going to suggest is a meeting between [Iranian President Hassan] Rouhani and President Trump on sidelines of the UN General Assembly [in NY this fall]", Vaez said.

"We don't differentiate between economic war and military war", he cautioned. We held talks with the USA for several months. "In a war, everybody loses the loss of some will be greater than the loss of others". "What we say is that we exercise our self defense". The Trump administration is proceeding with caution on the sanctions because it is concerned that recent tensions could spiral out of control, said the people familiar with the matter.
