Trump says willing to meet with Iran leaders ‘any time’


[7/30/2018 5:46:40 PM]

AMMONNEWS - US President Donald Trump said Monday he was willing to meet with Iran’s leaders with “no preconditions” and “any time they want” -- one week after tensions soared between Washington and Tehran.

“I would meet with Iran if they wanted to meet. I don’t know if they are ready yet,” Trump told a White House press conference with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte at his side.

A week ago, after a provocative warning from Iranian President Hassan Rowhani not to “play with the lion’s tail,” Trump blasted back a reply on Twitter -- in all caps:

“NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE,” Trump warned Rowhani.
