Iran rejects Trump offer of talks as 'humiliation', without value

Senior Iranian officials today rejected U.S. President Donald Trump's offer of talks without preconditions as worthless and a humiliation after he acted to reimpose sanctions on Tehran following his withdrawal from a landmark nuclear deal.
Yesterday, Trump declared that he would be willing to meet Iranian President Hassan Rouhani without preconditions to discuss how to improve relations.
Head of Iran's Strategic Council on Foreign Relations Kamal Kharrazi  today said Tehran saw no worth in Trump's offer, made only a week after he warned Iran it risked dire consequences few had ever suffered in history if it made threats against Washington.
Ali Motahari, the deputy speaker of Iran's parliament who is seen as part of Iran's moderate camp, said that to negotiate with Trump now would be a humiliation.
Iran's interior minister Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli said the United States is not trustworthy. Head of Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guards Major General Mohammad Ali Jafari also dismissed Trump's offer of talks, saying the Islamic Republic is not North Korea. 
Senior aide to Rouhani Hamid Aboutalebi today said, the only way back to talks was for Washington to return to the nuclear agreement. Separately, Iranian President Rouhani said Trump's repudiation of the accord reached in 2015 was illegal and Iran would not easily yield to Washington's renewed campaign to strangle Iran's vital oil exports.
