Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Tuesday that his US counterpart Donald Trump needed to restore trust before the possibility of a meeting.

"We must create mutual trust," Rouhani told Fox News, which Trump regularly watches, after the US leader criticized Iran before the UN General Assembly.

He further said: "If the government of the United States of America is willing to talk, it must create the needed conditions.”

French President Emmanuel Macron said that this week's UN summit would be a "lost opportunity" if his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani does not meet US President Donald Trump.

France's leader added that Trump will not go to Tehran "so they have to meet now."

Macron has been leading efforts to set up a historic rendezvous between the leaders whose nations have been enemies for four decades.
