10:57 am
championship what about the player who finished second. iran's supreme leader has turned down u.s. president donald trump's offer for direct talks hominidae says he's banned arabian leaders from meeting trump saying the u.s. never follows through on promises it makes during talks he also ruled out the possibility of war with the u.s. well in an exclusive interview with al jazeera iran's foreign minister says the u.s. has proven not to be trustworthy mohamed job says trump's decision to pull out of the twenty fifty nuclear deal has further strain ties between washington and tehran . we have no problem with dialogue but if mr trump really serious about talks if he is serious about talks without preconditions well the secretary of state put some conditions for talks two hours after trump's comments impossible conditions the first question is if they themselves have reached an agreement
10:58 am
inside the u.s. about talks with or without preconditions our policies in the region are totally clear it's the u.s. he needs to be accountable for policies in the region saying bradley has more from terror on. it has to be said there's nothing necessarily new in what the supreme leader of iran has said today but every time he speaks on any given issue with lends a certain amount of religious weight to the issue that he is discussing and so if you follow the arc of that logic now it is the law of the land of to not negotiate with the united states but as is the case with most of what officials in iran say there are it's the supreme leader it later in that address said that if iran is in a position to resist economic pressure and if iran is strong enough to negotiate with the united states on more equal footing and if the united states becomes more human towards iran then then iran may enter back into negotiations with the united
10:59 am
states so there is a subtle nuance there but he said as far as the trumpet ministration is concerned there is no way that iran will ever negotiate with the current white house well let's talk to trita parsi he is from the national iranian american council he joins us now via skype from arrest in virginia treats iran's supreme leader says they'll be no direct talks with president why is that are taller hominidae saying this now and what can you read into it do you think. well i think we have to go back to when drunk became president it was a period in which trump was refusing any negotiations was refusing to live up to the nuclear deal and eventually kill the deal and he used that time to really create leverage against the iranians by sabotaging the iranian economy by pushing companies out of iran and now after also having contributed to some of the unrest in iran i think the trumpet ministration feels that they're in a stronger position and now they're willing to go in to go shape and harmony's
11:00 am
responses i think somewhat predictable the iranians are not going to go to negotiating table or from a position of weakness so they're either going to ride this out and see if perhaps the trumpet mr asian going to be significantly weakened after november the november midterm elections or to going to start building up their own leverage as your package mentioned the yuron has actually usually do come to the table even with the united states but only when they feel comfortable and they feel that they're not in a position of weakness yeah on the supreme leader even tweeted a long list of reasons why iran won't negotiate primarily because they don't trust america as they say america sees talks just a business deal and the americans are depressed us what do you make of those assertions well i think what he's pointing out and what he wants to international community to take note of is that the iranians lived up to the nuclear agreement and trump did not trump is so good in the unit that the u.s. itself negotiated that the p five plus one.
