US seeking to negotiate a treaty with Iran: special envoy

US envoy says Washington willing to negotiate new deal with Iran

"The United States looking for an opportunity to negotiate the contract with Iran, which will include a program of Tehran on the development of ballistic missiles, as well as its behavior in the region", - notes the edition with reference to the latest statement of Brian Hooke on the eve of high-level meetings at the UN.

This comes as Iran has rejected Washington's attempts to hold talks since President Trump tore up a nuclear deal between Tehran and six world powers.

Although the other parties to the 2015 pact have said they would stand by the agreement, many large foreign companies have cancelled or suspended operations in Iran for fear of being affected by the U.S. sanctions.

Today, Zarif posted a tweet, saying "US calls JCPOA a personal agreement between two governments, claiming it "seeks a treaty".

Washington insists such a deal should address Iran's ballistic weapons capabilities, its nuclear capacity and its "destabilizing" and "malign" regional influence.

Until Mr Trump's announcement of withdrawing from the deal in May, Western allies considered the nuclear agreement with Iran to be a success. "That is insufficient in our system of government if you want to have something enduring and sustainable", Hook said, without elaborating on how the administration would negotiate.

Iran views the USA as acting in bad faith by withdrawing from a deal and has longed blamed Washington for stoking instability in the Middle East. It has said Trump's offer to negotiate contradicts his actions and accused Washington of trying to foment regime change.

President Donald Trump will chair a session dedicated to on Iran during the UN Security Council meeting this month. In July, Trump said he was willing to meet Iran's leaders "anytime they want" prompting speculation that a meeting could occur at the United Nations meetings next week.

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif smiles as he attends a bilateral meeting with China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi on the sidelines of the ASEAN Foreign Ministers' Meeting in Singapore, August 3, 2018. "That's their position, we respect that". To that, Hook said that the USA would impose more sanctions until they get what they want.

Mr Hook, who heads the State Department's Iran Action Group that formulates U.S. policy towards Tehran, said the USA would continue to tighten sanctions on Iran that were lifted under the 2015 pact.

Hook said Iran posed an worldwide threat to peace and security that went beyond the six major powers that sign the initial nuclear deal. European and Asian countries have been trying to salvage the nuclear deal despite new USA sanctions against Tehran.

"The threats posed by Iran's support for terrorism are not confined to the Middle East; they are truly global", he said.
