The door remains open for a wider negotiation with Iran about its nuclear program and other issues, but so far talks have been limited to prisoner releases, U.S. Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook said on Friday.

“ has had the door open to diplomacy for many years and in the same time frame, he has met Kim Jong Un three times. So, we would like to see the regime meet our diplomacy with diplomacy,” he told reporters a day after Iran freed U.S. citizen Michael White.

Hook said U.S.-Iranian negotiations have so far not gone beyond discussing the mutual release of prisoners to such issues as Iran’s nuclear program. He also said the number of U.S. citizens wrongly detained abroad who will be released will grow, but provided no details on when or where that might happen.

The U.S. official reiterated an appeal for Iran to release American citizens Baquer Namazi, his son Siamak Namazi and conservationist Morad Tahbaz. He specifically asked for the latter two to be furloughed from prison on medical grounds. Hook also said Washington plans to stick to its policy of harsh economic sanctions on Tehran in an effort to bring it to the negotiating table on issues such as the nuclear program, saying “timidity and weakness invites more Iranian aggression.”

“We refuse to play by that rule book. When you play under house rules, the house always wins,” Hook said. “So we are going to continue with our policy.”Our Standards:

US lies.

Who in their right fucking mind with negotiate with an administration that pulls support on the whim of the Mango Mussolini.

There is no diplomacy under trump. The state department has been gutted. All that’s left is a machine that franks checks.

The Trump Administration is full of rhetoric. This is like saying, we remain committed to social equality, while meanwhile supporting Gestapo tactics. Iran's structure of government is riddled with greed of power and ignorance as well. Trump is not skilled in diplomacy.

Trump burned that bridge

WTF are they talking about? They closed it long time ago.

Anybody with a half a brain cell could see why we can't be Iran. Now do you see Trump's problem. He's been putting 'Gatorade in his soil.'

That is a good thing!

And then U.S may suddenly close the door.


US needs to figure out their own shit first before policing other countries

Can somebody shut that door please.

Unfortunately, there’s no diplomacy in iranian policies 🇮🇷

Diplomacy is always the best way

Iran says, 'NO'!

Open the door to the missile bay instead.
