Iran nuclear deal.
That would ease concerns that China would work to undermine United States efforts to isolate the Islamic Republic by purchasing excess oil, Bloomberg said.
The United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Russian Federation - the other signatories to the JCPOA - have criticized America's decision to quit the deal.
Note, the United States authorities on Monday, August 6, restore the first part of the sanctions against Iran in connection with the release of the American side of the Joint comprehensive plan of action.
Francis Fannon, the assistant secretary of state for the Bureau of Energy Resources, was recently in China to discuss sanctions, according to a State Department spokesperson.
But this year, to the surprise of some military officials, there have been no such incidents. "I do believe that they will probably end up wanting to meet. There's no evidence to date of their desire to change to change their behaviour".
Instead, Iran hopes to improve relations with Europe, who it hopes will courageous USA sanctions to continue to buy its oil.
If the re-imposed sanctions caused the government in Tehran to collapse, Iran would likely devolve into civil war like what unfolded in Syria or radicals would assume power, the diplomat said.
It is likely that low-ranking members of the Iranian delegation and Trump's team will meet to hear each other's point of view before the regime decides whether to accept Trump's offer of talks.
Iran's economy has rapidly deteriorated in recent months due in part to uncertainty over the atomic accord, fueling protests.
Or the regime could start to address what America calls its "malign influence" in the region, including its support to Syrian President Bashar Assad and threats to shut down the strategic Strait of Hormuz, a vital shipping lane for global oil supplies.
The protests have often begun with slogans against the high cost of living and alleged financial corruption but quickly turned into anti-government rallies. Some protesters have shouted "Mullahs get lost!" and "Death to the dictator!" the semi-official Fars news agency has reported.
Another video showed heavy police presence and road blocks in the city of Karaj, west of Tehran, which has been the scene of daily protests.
USA officials last week said Iran carried out a similar exercise, though Tehran did not immediately acknowledge it.
