Iranian Foreign Minister says Tehran still willing to negotiate with U.S.
Iran is not ruling out negotiations with the United States even after an American drone strike that killed a top Iranian general, the country's foreign minister said in an interview released Saturday.Mohammed Javad Zarif told Germany's Der Spiegel magazine that he would "never rule out the possibility that people will change their approach and recognize the realities," in an interview conducted Friday in Tehran. There has been growing tension between Washington and Tehran since in 2018, when President Donald Trump pulled the United States out of the nuclear deal with Iran. The U.S. has since reimposed tough sanctions that have crippled Iran's economy. But Zarif suggested Iran was still willing to talk, though reiterated his country's previous demand that first the U.S. would have to lift sanctions. "For us, it doesn't matter who is sitting in the White House, what matters is how they behave," he said, according to Der Spiegel. "The Trump administration can correct its past, lift the sanctions and come back to the negotiating table. We're still at the negotiating table. They're the ones who left." Trump has maintained that the 2015 nuclear deal needs to be renegotiated because it didn't address Iran's ballistic missile program or its involvement in regional conflicts. The other signatories to the nuclear deal -- Germany, France, Britain, China and Russia -- have been struggling to keep it alive. Following the U.S. drone strike on Jan. 3 that killed Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleimani, Iran announced it would no longer abide by any of the deal's limitations to its enrichment activities. It then retaliated Jan. 8, launching ballistic missiles at two bases in Iraq housing American troops, causing injuries but no fatalities among soldiers there. Zarif did suggest Iran was also still prepared for conflict with the U.S., though was not specific. "The U.S. has inflicted great harm on the Iranian people," he said. "The day will come when they will have to compensate for that. We have a lot of patience." Related Stories Read more: CTV News

Iranian investigators 'trying to do the right thing' after Tehran plane crash: TSB chairIranian investigators are ‘trying to do the right thing’ by providing Canadian officials with more information than would typically be allowed under international protocols during the investigation into the downing of Ukrainian Airlines Flight 752, according to the chair of the Transportation Safety Board. Iran tampered with the crash site. Canada has not had access to the black boxes. Why is Canada trying to appease Iran? The victims’ families deserve better. Do better Canada. To paraphrase Yoda: do or do not; thete is no 'try'. Iran needs to stop trying everyone's patience and actually do the right thing.
Yeah, sure. “Negotiate” a nuclear deal with a state sponsor of terrorism? That’s absolute madness. Besides, if they can shoot down a passenger jet as an oops, they should not have nuclear capability. End of conversation. Why would the US want to? Starving too quick, eh! Hitler was negotiating with Russia right up until they pulled a surprise attack. Just sayin.
