Iranian cleric says Israel, US will be targeted if Washington attacks

US President Donald Trump answers a reporter's question during an interview with Reuters in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington US

He is now in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev where he will attend a parade to mark the country's independence from the Soviet Union in 1991.

Donald Trump was elected president as a populist outsider who talked non-intervention, but his administration is being hijacked by neoconservatives who want to preserve the USA empire, former congressman Ron Paul has told RT.

The meetings are aimed toward "opening up channels" and 'break through some of the difficulties we've had, ' he added.

"We don't think our president really at heart endorses all these positions. yet the people he has hired do", Paul said, bringing up his appointment of Bolton, a neoconservative hawk from the George W. Bush administration.

While Bolton said they made "a lot of progress" in discussing "how to restore in certain respects diplomatic and other exchanges and ways in which we could cooperate and expand our common efforts", he did not provide details.

Last week, Khamenei - who has the ultimate say on Iranian policy - said the United States would avoid outright conflict because of Iranian military might.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez may still be persuaded to get his cheque book out before La Liga's transfer window closes on Aug 31.

But he appeared to offer a bit of an olive branch.

Maintaining control over the Kurdish canton's in north and north east Syria as well as keeping a foothold in eastern Syria is vital for the new U.S. strategy for Syria and important for Israel which is very concerned about the Iranian activities in Syria.

Extending New Start, which Bolton denounced at its inception as undermining USA national security interests, has always been a Russian priority.

Patrushev said after the meeting in remarks carried by Russian news agencies that he and Bolton didn't agree on a joint statement because the USA wanted to mention the alleged Russian meddling in the US election.

Russian Federation did not request any waivers, he adds.

Bolton hosts a press conference after meeting with Russia's Nikolai Patrushev for five hours.

Trump calls Turkey a ‘problem,’ says detained United States pastor isn’t a spy
Vice President Mike Pence has been especially outspoken on the Brunson case, particularly before Christian audiences. USA stocks suffered their worst day in seven weeks after the move, and the lira gained 7 percent against the dollar.

Russian state-run TASS news agency quoted Ryabkov, who participated in the talks with Bolton, as saying Washington is "drunk with narcissism".

"There should not be any doubt that the United States wants this resolved peacefully, but we are fully prepared for any contingency that Iran creates", Bolton said during a visit to Israel, Iran's enemy in the Middle East.

As for the Syrian issue and the role of Iran, Bolton said that the USA position is that "all Iranian forces return to Iran", adding that he and his Russian counterpart talked about a variety of ways in which it might be accomplished through a series of steps. The assumption held by the Obama administration, that Iran's behavior would change once the nuclear deal was made and behave like a "normal country", Bolton said was proven wrong.

In a joint statement, the 3 powers said they were "gravely concerned" over the military offensive in Idlib and the resulting humanitarian consequences.

In the meantime, Iran has remained a close ally of Syria and supports its legitimate government in the face of foreign-backed militancy.

President Donald Trump's hawkish national security adviser says the Europeans have to make a choice between the USA and Iran in observing American sanctions which he claims have been more effective than expected.
