Amid reports in Israeli media that Trump & Rouhani may hold a meeting during September UNGA, Kuwaiti Al Jarida--widely believed to be used by Israel to disseminate info to regional countries--says Trump has accepted 7 Iranian conditions for bilateral negotiations.
Context of these reports is of course that Israel has track record of vehemently opposing US-Iran diplomacy/improvement of relations & of sabotaging such efforts. So take them how you will.
First, the Israeli Ma'ariv outlet reported that Trump & Rouhani may meet during the UNGA. The report simply quoted a senior UN official as stating "we think it's worth making the effort to take this opportunity to push toward a meeting between the two leaders."
More interesting is the al-Jarida report.
It states that before Rouhani's trip to Europe in June, Iranian FM Zarif gave Omani FM list of 7 Iranian conditions for bilateral negotiations.
Omani FM delivered this list in his recent trip to Washington.
The Iranian conditions were:
1. US to return to JCPOA & fully abide by its commitments.
2. Stopping military threats.
3. Providing guarantees on ending US efforts to topple Iranian gov.
4. End US efforts to increase distance b/w Iran & regional Arab states
5. Ending new economic (reinstated) sanctions.
6. Stopping economic pressure.
7. Stop pressure on EU companies so they return to Iran
In return, #Iran would cooperate with the US to resolve the Syrian & Yemeni crises, & coordinate with the US over Iraq & Afghanistan.
The report states that contrary to Iranian expectations, Washington responded positively & immediately accepted 2 of the demands. This was evident in Mattis' recent comments that US was not seeking regime change or to attack #Iran.
It was after this that Trump announced his willingness to have unconditional talks with Rouhani.
After his Washington trip, the Omani FM was set to travel directly to Tehran to deliver Washington's response, but the Iranians asked for this to be delayed until Zarif returns from a trip abroad.
The report also adds that Washington requested for Zarif & Pompeo to meet at the sidelines of the ASEAN conference in Singapore, in order to lay groundwork for Trump-Rouhani meeting at UNGA.
