Iran said on Monday it is “pessimistic” about the outcome of talks between the United States and North Korea, recommending Pyongyang to remain “vigilant” in dealing with a country that has an infamous history of reneging on promises.  
Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi told a press briefing that Iran wants peace in the Korean peninsula but the US has proved time and again that it is not a reliable partner, Fars News Agency reported. 
US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un arrived in Singapore on Sunday for an unprecedented summit, with the US demanding complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization, according to AFP.  It comes just over a month after the US president pulled out of a landmark nuclear deal with Iran and other world powers that put restrictions on Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.
