Trusselen om sanksjoner som slår inn i august, henger tungt over Iran. Men hvordan reagerer lederskapet på Trumps tilbud? Kan hardlinerne tenke seg å la Rouhani møte Trump?

Donald Trump sa mandag at han er villig til å møte presidenten av Iran, Hassan Rouhani, når som helst og uten forhåndsbetingelser.

Det har vært en hissig ordkrig mellom Teheran og Washington den senere tid. Trusler og advarsler har fløyet gjennom luften.

Trumps forslag kom overraskende.

President Trump said Monday that he is ready to meet without preconditions with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, despite a recent exchange of threats with the leader of the Islamic regime.

“No preconditions. They want to meet. I’ll meet — anytime they want,” Mr. Trump said.

Mr. Trump made the offer despite criticism Republicans aimed at his predecessor, President Barack Obama, for suggesting a meeting with Iran without preconditions.

“I’ll meet with anybody. I believe in meeting,” Mr. Trump said at a joint press conference with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte.
