I would certainly meet with Iran if they wanted to meet.

Trump on Sunday denied that he was willing to meet with Iranian leaders with "no conditions", blaming the "fake news" media for spreading the idea.

Speaking at a press conference on Monday, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abbas Mousavi dismissed any lingering speculations that Iranian President Rouhani and US President Trump would meet and hold talks during Rouhani's stay in NY for the upcoming UN General Assembly.

"Having failed at "max pressure", US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo turning to "max deceit", Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote on Twitter on Sunday, in response to Washington's accusations over the Saudi oil attacks.

On Thursday Mnuchin had also said that Trump "has said he would sit down with Rouhani with no conditions", with the caveat that there were no plans to do so yet. "They need to get a messaging meeting and they need to read the constitution of the Democratic Party".

POMPEO: "The president has made very clear he is prepared to meet with no preconditions". Anytime they want. Anytime they want.

Tensions between Iran and the United States are running high as Tehran has pushed its uranium enrichment beyond the level agreed in the nuclear deal. "That is an incorrect statement (as usual)".

September 10, 2019: Appearing together at a press briefing, Mnuchin and Pompeo said within moments of each other that Trump was willing to meet with Iran with "no pre-conditions".

"I think you know we've done more sanctions on Iran than anybody".

And Trump told reporters in July 2018 that it would be good for both countries if the leaders talked: "No preconditions". And it's absolutely working.

"If [U.S. President Donald] Trump takes the necessary actions and rebuild the trust, the talks can be continued within the framework of 5+1 group", he said.

Conway told "Fox News Sunday" that Trump would "consider" following up on his suggestion of a meeting at the upcoming UN General Assembly session in NY, adding that 'the conditions must always be right for this president to make a deal or take a meeting'.
