Trump ‘would meet Iran’s Rouhani if circumstances right’

US President Donald Trump says he is open to meeting Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani under the right circumstances, reports BBC.

It comes after Iran’s foreign minister made a brief and unannounced visit to the G7 summit in France on Sunday.

Relations between Iran and the US have deteriorated since Washington withdrew last year from a 2015 deal to limit Iran’s nuclear activities.

However, on Monday, Mr Trump said he had “good feelings” about the prospect of a new nuclear deal with Iran.

“Iran is not the same country it was two and a half years ago when I came into office,” he told reporters at a joint G7 press conference with French leader Emmanuel Macron.

“I really believe that Iran can be a great nation… but they can’t have nuclear weapons,” he said, adding that they had to be “good players” before he would agree to a meeting.

Earlier on Monday, Mr Rouhani said he was ready to meet anyone if he felt it would benefit Iran.

“If I am sure that attending a session or having a meeting with someone will help develop my country and resolve the people’s problems, I will not hesitate to do so,” he said.
