Trump: US not Seeking 'Regime Change' in Iran
The United States is not pushing to topple Iran's leadership, President Donald Trump said, adding "a lot of progress" has been made to ease tensions that recently threatened to ignite a war, al-Jazeera reports.
Trump responded that Washington is determined to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.
"We are not looking for regime change. We are not looking for that at all," the US president said. "We'll see what happens. But a lot of progress has been made."
But he added: "They can't have a nuclear weapon. They can't be testing ballistic missiles."
Trump did not elaborate on the "progress" made, but US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said at the same cabinet meeting that Iran had said it was prepared to negotiate over its missile programme.
