Trump contradicts aides, self on Iran talks

AP FACT CHECK Trump contradicts aides self on Iran talks

Flowing the attack, President Donald Trump on Sunday tweeted that the USA was "locked and loaded", but was waiting for the Saudis to verify Iran's culpability and provide guidance on "under what terms we would proceed!"

The White House said on Sunday that US President Donald Trump could meet Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in NY next week.

"I don't think I need to, but I'm willing to do it".

It comes as tensions rise over an attack on Saudi Arabia's oil infrastructure that has damaged production capacity and sparked a fresh wave of vitriol between the USA and Iranian leaders.

After Abe and Rouhani agreed on Japanese assistance in the fields of medicine and disaster prevention during their talks previous year in NY on the fringes of the United Nations meeting, Iranian officials made repeated requests for medical aid, including the supply of advanced equipment, the sources said.

But Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Tuesday that his country won't negotiate with the U.S.at any level.

The US military, he said, was working with its partners to "address this unprecedented attack".

"I'm not looking to get into new conflict, but sometimes you have to", he said on Monday.

Since the early Saturday attacks on Saudi Aramco facilities talk of war has been on the table, especially given President Trump's initial "locked and loaded" threat - however, Trump has since walked back his bravado and has instead announced new sanctions. "At the right time, they'll be ready".
