Trump says he refused to lift sanctions for an Iran meeting

WASHINGTON, Sept 27 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said he had refused a request by Tehran to lift sanctions in exchange for talks, contradicting Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, who earlier on Friday said the United States had offered to lift restrictions to facilitate a meeting.

“Iran wanted me to lift the sanctions imposed on them in order to meet. I said, of course, NO!” Trump tweeted. (Reporting by Susan Heavey; Editing by Catherine Evans)
