"If there is sincerity, Iran has always welcomed dialogue and negotiations," Rouhani said. Trump's national security adviser John Bolton, when asked about the offer by CNN's Jake Tapper, dismissed it as possible "propaganda." "Let's see what really...

Some demonstrators have been shot and remarkably, there are reports of cries of ďdeath to Khameini,Ē the cleric who is Iranís supreme leader.
