Trump Says It Is Too Soon to Make Deal with Iran

Trump Says It Is Too Soon to Make Deal with Iran

   Washington, June 13 (Jiji Press)--U.S. President Donald Trump said Thursday that it is too soon to make a deal with Iran, while appreciating Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's efforts to mediate tensions between Washington and Tehran.
   "While I very much appreciate...Abe going to Iran to meet with Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, I personally feel that it is too soon to even think about making a deal," Trump said on Twitter, referring to Iran's supreme leader. "They are not ready, and neither are we!"
   The tweet came after Khamenei refused to have dialogue with the United States. "I don't consider Trump as a person deserving to exchange messages with," Khamenei said on Twitter after his meeting with Abe in Tehran on Thursday.
   U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also appreciated Abe's diplomatic efforts, telling reporters that this was "a historic trip to Iran, to ask the regime to de-escalate and enter into talks."
   Pompeo criticized Khamenei for rejecting "Abe's diplomacy today by saying he has no response to President Trump and will not answer."
