Iran says U.S. doesn’t dare to attack Iran Khamenei has rejected Trump’s offer of unconditional talks on a new nuclear deal, prompting Trump to tell Reuters in an interview on Monday: “If they want to meet, that’s fine, and if they don’t want to meet, I couldn’t care less.” Relations between Washington and Tehran worsened further after Trump in May took the United States out of an international deal that curbed Tehran’s nuclear program in return for an easing of economic sanctions. Trump branded that 2015 deal as flawed because it did not address Iran’s missile program or involvement in conflicts in Syria and Yemen, and he has reimposed U.S. economic sanctions. Rouhani compared the sanctions on Iran with the U.S. trade war with China and its new tariffs on some imports from Turkey and European countries. “It’s not only us who do not trust America. Today even Europe and China do not trust them; even American allies like Canada have lost their trust,” he said. A view of the newly unveiled Iranian fighter jet in Tehran, Iran August 21, 2018.
