U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that Washington is ready to begin a dialogue with Iran without any preconditions. He made the corresponding statement during a joint press conference with Swiss Foreign Minister Ignazio Cassis, Reuters reports.

“We are certainly ready to lead this conversation when the Iranians can prove that they want to behave like a normal nation,” said Pompeo.

President Hassan Rouhani suggested that Iran might negotiate if the United States shows respect for it and does not put pressure on Tehran.

We recall that Iran and the United States were involved in a sharp confrontation last month, a year after Washington withdrew from the agreement between Iran and the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France, and Germany to curb Tehran’s nuclear program, which was concluded in exchange on the abolition of international sanctions.

U.S. President Donald Trump says that the agreement on the 2015 nuclear program was not effective enough, and he wants to force Iran to agree on a new agreement. Some U.S. officials talked about the possibility of new negotiations.

Last year, Washington reintroduced sanctions and strengthened them in May, obliging all countries to stop importing Iranian oil. In recent weeks, the United States also hinted at a military confrontation, declaring sending of additional military forces in the Middle East, in order to be able to respond to the Iranian threat in the region.
Earlier, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif accused the US of creating an "Action group", which will have to carry out a coup d'état in the country. The head of the Iranian department wrote this on his official Twitter page.

"65 years ago today, the US overthrew the popularly elected democratic government of Dr. Mossadegh, restoring the dictatorship & subjugating Iranians for the next 25 years. Now an “Action Group” dreams of doing the same through pressure, misinformation & demagoguery. Never again," the minister said.
