INTERVIEW: Abe Likely to Propose Trump-Rouhani Meeting

INTERVIEW: Abe Likely to Propose Trump-Rouhani Meeting

   Washington, June 9 (Jiji Press)--Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, during his visit to Iran this week, is likely to propose a meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and his Iranian counterpart, Hassan Rouhani, in September, according to an expert.
   "My understanding is that Prime Minister Abe is likely to suggest a meeting between President Trump and President Rouhani on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in September," Ali Vaez, project director for Iran at the think tank International Crisis Group, said in a recent interview.
   "I would say that can only happen if President Trump is willing to make a first concession to the Iranians as a goodwill gesture," Vaez said, citing a possible suspension of the U.S. oil sanctions on Iran.
   But the Republicans and U.S. allies in the Middle East "would really not like the president to relieve the pressure at this stage," he added.
   Abe is scheduled to visit Iran for three days from Wednesday in an effort to mediate U.S.-Iran tensions over the 2015 nuclear deal.
