IRAN RULES OUT NUKE TALKS UNLESS U.S. ENDS THREATS
TEHRAN, Iran on Friday ruled out the possibility of renegotiating with the U.S. on the 2015 nuclear deal unless Washington ends threats to the Islamic republic.
"There is no prospect for dialogue between Iran and the United States in any area before Washington uses the language of dignity," said Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi.
His remarks came in response to the latest threats by U.S. President Donald Trump to impose the most severe sanctions against Iran.
Trump had better stop his threats, sanctions, pressures and unilateral approaches to other countries and nations, the Iranian spokesman warned.
At a joint press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the White House on Thursday, Trump said Washington is "putting sanctions on Iran, the likes of which nobody has ever seen before."
But Trump also expressed the hope that "at some point" Iran would sit down with the U.S. to make a deal "that's good for them, and good for us, and good for everybody."
The Iranian people "have never changed their wise judgement, deeds and behavior in dealing with any bullying and threats and will never do in the future," Qasemi said.
Trump's decision to withdraw from the nuclear accord Iran signed with major powers in 2015 is a clear example of the U.S. breach of international regulations, he noted.
