The United States is continuing its campaign of “maximum pressure” against Iran, according to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Thursday.

Mnuchin told CNBC: “There’s no question it’s working.”

He said that there’s no plan for Donald Trump to meet Iranian President Hassan Rouhani at the United Nations General Assembly in New York in late September, but that Trump is still willing to meet Rouhani with no preconditions.

French President Emmanuel Macron is being praised for attempting to facilitate talks between Iran and the US, but few are questioning whether this is appropriate considering that Iran tried to bomb a rally in Paris just last year.

Last Friday, Macron met Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif in Paris before inviting him to the G7 summit in Biarritz, hinting at talks between Donald Trump and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

The week-long trip of Mohammad Javad Zarif, the Iranian Regime’s Foreign Minister, to Sweden, Finland, Norway and France caused outrage among the Iranian diaspora and turned into a fiasco for Tehran.

Zarif, labeled as a terrorist-enabler and sanctioned by the Trump administration on July 24, visited Europe this week, and according to the state-run Keyhan newspaper on Saturday, tried desperately to “find the key in Paris" even though "Europeans have no intention or show no move to uphold their promises.” At the end, he gained nothing but disgrace, and anywhere he went, he was faced with angry protesters.
