Pariah Asian nation, Iran, says it is open for talks with the United States of America if Washington lifts sanctions and returns to the 2015 nuclear deal it pulled out of last year.
That much information was revealed by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani who said Tehran is open for dialogue if sanctions are lifted and the US returns to the nuclear deal.
“We have always believed in talks … if they lift sanctions, end the imposed economic pressure and return to the deal, we are ready to hold talks with America today, right now and anywhere,” Rouhani said in a televised speech on Sunday.
President Rouhani’s comments comes after a leaked memo written by the UK’s former ambassador to the US, Sir Kim Darroch, revealed that Donald Trump abandoned the Iran nuclear deal to spite Barack Obama.
Darroch who has since resigned described the move on Sunday as an act of diplomatic vandalism.
The report comes following news last week that Darroch sent diplomatic cables describing President Donald Trump as inept, insecure and incompetent, a UK government official confirmed to CNN.
