Iran demands lifting sanctions to start negotiations with America

The Iranian Minister of Security and Intelligence, Mahmoud Alawi, said that the United States and Iran could resume talks if the United States lifted sanctions.

Iranian Security and Intelligence Minister Mahmoud Alawi told Iran's IRNA news agency that if sanctions were lifted, Iran's top authorities could allow talks between Washington and Tehran.

He also said, late on Wednesday, that "talks with America can be revisited, only if President Donald Trump suspended sanctions and allowed the Supreme Leader to return them."

The tension between America and Iran escalated after the Iranian Revolutionary Guard dropped a US military aircraft. The US military replied that the plane was shot at a high level in the airspace above the Strait of Hormuz, about 34 kilometers from Iranian airspace.
