Donald Trump offers to meet Iran without preconditions

Regardless, Trump reiterated his belief that Iran will eventually come around.

"We can not negotiate with someone who violates global commitments, threatens to destroy countries, and constantly changes his position", he added.

And these words are also matched by actions.

"Talks with the U.S. would have been right had the USA not withdrawn from the JCPOA and imposed sanctions on Iran", Ali Motahhari said, according to Iran's state-run IRNA news outlet. Now, Iran's economy is feeling the consequences.

Iran is now in a diplomatic race against the United States as it tries to convince countries to maintain business ties while the United States sends out delegations to convince countries to isolate Iran, especially to stop buying Iranian oil, a crucial revenue source buoying the regime.

President Trump may be looking to his North Korean playbook in his future dealings with the Iranian regime, saying he was "willing to meet" with leaders in Tehran should they agree to a new path forward on a series of worldwide issues.

First, North Korea has nuclear weapons.

Iran insists its nuclear programme is entirely peaceful, and its compliance with the deal has been verified by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which has said Iran is honouring its commitments.

In early July, Rouhani threatened to block the Strait of Hormuz, saying that if Iran can't export oil, no other country in the region will either.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told CNBC on Monday that he was onboard with the president's invitation, but he appeared to add several qualifications.

Thirdly, Iran is not almost as politically isolated as North Korea, as Rouhani's recent visit to Europe demonstrates.

Such a meeting would be the first between United States and Iranian leaders since before the 1979 Iranian revolution.

Given Iran's various centers of power and the skepticism about such a meeting on the part of Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, the country's spiritual guide and most powerful man, it's very unlikely to happen.

It's possible that Trump doesn't really want to meet with Iran's leaders.

The withdrawal is reverberating through Iran's political system, damaging moderates and reformists who championed the diplomacy and saw relief from sanctions as the ticket to economic prosperity.

The overture marks a significant shift in tone and comes as Trump and the Iranians have been escalating their rhetoric following Trump's May withdrawal from the landmark Iran nuclear accord.
