US Secretary of State Reaffirms US Position on Iran

Trump, Iran's Rouhani could meet at UN, Pompeo says

Trump, Iran's Rouhani could meet at UN, Pompeo says

Earlier Monday, the IAEA confirmed that Iran was installing advanced centrifuges, a move that puts further pressure on the troubled 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.

Pompeo made the comments at a news briefing to unveil new sanctions on groups including Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

On Sept. 7, Iran announced that it has activated 20 IR-4 centrifuges and 20 advanced IR-6 centrifuges to boost the country's stockpile of enriched uranium.

Iran has rejected a claim by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that Tehran had been developing nuclear weapons at a secret site and accused him of seeking a pretext for war. He also said this claim could goad the USA president into conflict with Tehran.

Earlier Monday, China - a signatory to the JCPOA along with France, Germany, Britain and Russian Federation - called on the United States to "give up its wrong approach such as unilateral sanctions and extreme pressure against Iran".

"The agency continues to verify and monitor Iran's nuclear-related commitments under the JCPOA", IAEA performing director normal Cornel Feruta stated in an announcement, referring to the accord's formal title, the Joint Complete Plan of Motion.

This weekend, United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke about the Iranian regime in two separate interviews.

In an address on live television, Netanyahu showed pictures of an alleged site near Abadeh, south of Isfahan, where he said Iran conducted experiments to develop nuclear weapons.

At the G7 summit last week, French president said that he was "convinced that an agreement" could be found if the United States and Iranian presidents could meet. "Iran should straighten out, because frankly they are in a very bad position right now and they should straighten it out because they could straighten it out very easy".

Asked whether he thought there would ever be a meeting between President Trump and President Rouhani, Pompeo said he was unsure and it all depends on the Iranian Supreme Leader.

However, Rouhani ruled out any bilateral talks with the White House, retreating from his earlier remarks of openness to talk with anyone when the interests of his people are at stake.

On the eve of the US 2020 presidential elections, Trump needs "an Iran agreement" since he has had no achievement in the USA foreign policy, Izadi pointed out, adding that Trump's exit from the deal will have no achievement for the United States.
