Iran’s Zarif hits back after Trump’s ‘No thanks’ Twitter post

President Donald Trump has said the United States will not lift sanctions on Iran in order to enter negotiations with it, in a response to the Iranian foreign minister who suggested Tehran was still willing to talk on the condition Washington “correct[ed] its past” and removed a series of tough economic measures.

There has been growing friction between the two longtime foes since 2018 when Trump pulled his country out of a landmark nuclear deal signed between Iran and world powers. The US has since reimposed crippling sanctions on Iran’s economy while calling for negotiations on a new accord that also addressed Tehran’s ballistic missiles programme and its support for regional armed groups.
