Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Tuesday they saw no prospect of negotiations with the United States, a day after President Donald Trump said a deal with Iran on its nuclear program was possible.

“We currently see no prospect of negotiations with America,” Abbas Mousavi was quoted as saying by the semi-official Fars news agency.

Trump said on Monday: “I really believe that Iran would like to make a deal, and I think that’s very smart of them, and I think that’s a possibility to happen.”
