United States President Donald Trump says he is willing to meet with Iran’s leaders with no preconditions, one week after tensions soared between Washington and Tehran.

President Trump, who was addressing a White House press conference together with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said he would meet the Iranian leaders at any time of their choice.

A week ago, after a provocative warning from Iranian President Hassan Rouhani not to “play with the lion’s tail,” Trump blasted back a reply on twitter saying threatening the security of the United States would result in drastic consequences.
