U.S. President Donald Trump reiterated that he was open to meeting with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani this month at the U.N. General Assembly in New York.
“Sure, anything’s possible. They would like to be able to solve their problem,” he said on Wednesday in reference to rising inflation and the struggling economy for citizens of the Islamic Republic. “We could solve it in 24 hours.”
French President Emmanuel Macron called on Trump last week at the Group of Seven, or G7, meetings in Biarritz, France, to return to the negotiating table with the Iranians since withdrawing the United States from the nuclear accord in May 2018, reimposing sanctions lifted under it along with enacting new financial penalties against the regime.
