Iran has vehemently ruled out the possibility of holding talks with the United States on a new agreement, urging Washington to stop its rhetoric of threat in addressing the civilized and great Iranian people and use the language of wisdom and respect instead.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Friday that US President Donald Trump is better to stop his threats, sanctions, pressure and unilateral approaches to other countries and nations across the world instead of expressing hope about reaching a deal with Iran.

Addressing a joint press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Thursday, Trump said the US is "putting sanctions on Iran, the likes of which nobody has ever seen before."

However, he expressed hope that "at some point they’ll come to us and we’ll sit down, and we’ll make a deal that’s good for them, and good for us, and good for everybody. And it will be great for Iran. I expect it to be — I want it to be great for Iran… We had a great opportunity to make a phenomenal deal."
