US President Donald Trump said that his administration is not looking for regime change and that he was open to Japan talking to Iran. It came in the context of Trump’s state visit to Japan and amid tensions with Tehran. In early May the US warned of Iranian threats, but in the last week it appears Washington has climbed down a bit from claims it would retaliate if Iranian proxies attacked the US or its allies.
Trump said that he knew Japan has a good relationship with Iran and that he would wait to “see what happens.” Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif was in Japan earlier this month and Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe might visit Iran this month. Trump said he was open to a deal with Iran and that the country has “tremendous economic potential.” Trump sought to differentiate himself from predecessors, saying he didn’t care about regime change or looking for nuclear weapons, which contrasted with the Bush and Obama administrations that had differing views on Iran.
