Secretary of National Security Council Ali Shamkhani
[US President Trump recently said Iranians have sent him messages for negotiations. Secretary of National Security Council Ali Shamkhani calls Trump a liar, saying he was approached in Afghanistan with a proposal for negotiation from Americans.]
Ali Shamkhani: Is this a reliable government to negotiate with? Of course, they are sending messages now. Trump is lying when he says Iranians are sending messages [for negotiations]. In Afghanistan, two individuals came to me saying that Americans are ready to negotiate. In what framework should we negotiate? Who will be committed to what you [Americans] sign? Who will be committed to implementing it?
Anchor: Secretary of National Security Council also said that Europe must be accountable for not fulfilling the promise of cooperation with Iran after the US pulling out of the JCPOA.
Ali Shamkhani: Those who were committed to cooperate with Iran must be accountable. Time is up.
