Trump reiterates no pre-condition for talks with Iran
Jun 23, 2019, 00:30
Trump disclosed Friday that he called off a United States military strike on Iran at the last minute, saying it would be a disproportionate response to Thursday's downing of a high-flying, unmanned U.S. aircraft over the Strait of Hormuz.
Rep. Elise Stefanik called Iran a "rogue regime" Friday after President Donald Trump called off US military strikes he had previously approved against that country.
"More than 60 days have elapsed since the President first began to engage in acts of "hostilities" against Iran, as the term is defined by the War Powers Resolution of 1973-both through his deployment of United States forces and his support of Saudi military actions against Iran in connection with the military struggle between Tehran and Riyadh in Yemen", said Ackerman.
"Ten minutes before the strike I stopped it, not proportionate to shooting down an unmanned drone".
It added the United Kingdom still supported the Iranian nuclear deal - that Mr Trump ditched in 2018. The meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Osaka to discuss the future of the two powers' relationship far exceeds that of the Islamic Republic, yet the summit will be useful for the president to mobilise political support for potential military action and additional measures against Iran.
"He's offering right now with this opportunity, talks for Iran to come back and negotiate... if they don't or if they continue to escalate..."
He said that stricter economic sanctions could help the USA topple the Iranian regime.
Officials in Tehran and Washington have disputed whether the drone was in Iranian airspace or not.
The Lehigh Valley Republican said he doesn't yet know enough pertinent details about this week's events or range of options available to the Trump administration.

Michael O'Hanlon, a military analyst at the Brookings Institution think tank, said Washington and Tehran are now "partly trying to defuse" tensions for conflict. "He can go to the Europeans, to the Asians", he said, noting that Trump could push other nations to join his pressure campaign.
