Trump Says U.S. Not Seeking Regime Change in Iran

U.S President Donald Trump on Monday stressed that his country is “not looking for regime” in Iran, saying that he is seeking a nuclear-free Iran.

"I know so many people from Iran, these are great people, it has a chance to be a great country, with the same leadership," Trump said at a press conference in Tokyo.

"We're not looking for regime change, I just want to make that clear. We're looking for no nuclear weapons."

"I'm not looking to hurt Iran at all," he added.

Trump said that he was open to new negotiations.

"I really believe that Iran would like to make a deal. I think that's very smart of them and I think there's a possibility for that to happen also."

"If they'd like to talk, we'd like to talk also."

"I think we'll make a deal," he said at the press conference alongside Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
