The U.S. is planning to impose major new sanctions on Iran despite a diplomatic push from European leaders to urge restraint from leaders in Washington and Tehran. However, U.S. President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo both said over the weekend that the White House is prepared to negotiate with Iran without preconditions, days after the two nations almost came to blows over the downing of an American surveillance drone.
