U.S. Treasury Secretary Mnuchin remarked that “as of now, there is no plan for the president to meet with [President Rouhani], although the president has said that he is prepared to meet with no conditions”. Mnuchin added that “Secretary [of State] Pompeo, I and the rest of the national security team are executing on a maximum pressure strategy with Iran. There’s no question that it’s working.
