BIARRITZ, France (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said it was realistic to think that a meeting with Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani could happen in the coming weeks.

“I have a good feeling. They have to be good players, if you understand what I mean. They can’t do what they were saying they were going to do, because if they do that, they will be met with really very violent force. So I think they are going to be good,” Trump told reporters at a news conference at a G7 summit in Biarritz.

“I think he is going to want to meet and get their situation straightened out. They are hurting badly.”
