Iran ready for talks if U.S. apologizes for nuclear pact, says Rouhani

DUBAI (Reuters) – Iran would be open to talks with the United States if Washington apologizes for the release of a 2015 nuclear deal and compensates Tehran, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday.

US President Donald Trump withdrew from the pact between Iran and six world powers in 2018 and reimposed sanctions – saying the deal was not doing enough to contain Tehran’s missile program and its regional influence.

“We have no problem with the talks with the United States, but only if Washington fulfills its obligations under the nuclear agreement, apologizes and compensates Tehran for its withdrawal from the 2015 agreement”, Rouhani said in a televised speech.

“But we know that these calls for talks with Tehran are just words and lies,” he added.
