Direct Talks Possible if US Alters Hostile Stance

Iran may engage in direct talks with the United States if it reverses its arrogant and hostile policy and honors its international commitments, says a senior lawmaker.  
"There is a possibility if they commit to the JCPOA, apologize and put their hostile policies aside," Ali Najafi-Khoshroodi, the spokesperson for the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, told ISNA in remarks published on Saturday when asked if direct talks with the US are possible.  
US President Donald Trump in May pulled out of the 2015 international nuclear deal -- formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action -- that was concluded before he took office, denouncing it as one-sided in Iran's favor. The agreement was signed by Iran, the US, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China.
