Iran's new president is due to address the UN General Assembly today. Statements he made in recent weeks signal he wants to pursue better relations with the West and is open to discussing Iran's nuclear program.
The exchange follows threats from Iran's Revolutionary Guards to avenge the assault on a military parade. Iran-US ties have worsened after President Donald Trump renewed sanctions on Tehran over its nuclear program.
A deadly attack on an Iranian military parade demonstrates the country is internally vulnerable. Analysts say the regime is likely to respond with a tougher line at home and in the wider region.
Iran's foreign minister has called on the US to act "like a normal state." And the country's president said US President Donald Trump would fail in his confrontations with Tehran.
Tehran has blamed Saudi Arabia, the UAE and the US for acting from the shadows in the terror attack on a military parade in Ahvaz. Will Iran retaliate with military action as threatened— or is it just posturing?
