"We are prepared to engage in a conversation with no preconditions", Pompeo said in Switzerland, which in the absence of US-Iranian diplomatic ties represents Washington's interests in the Islamic republic.
Iran's foreign minister says Tehran needs "no mediator" for negotiating with the USA, but the prerequisite for a dialogue is for Washington to abide by the 2015 nuclear agreement.

Despite the USA protests against Tehran's nuclear program, the International Atomic Energy Agency, the United Nations' nuclear monitoring agency, says that Iran is continuing to comply with the 2015 nuclear deal.
The Trump administration argues that the 2015 deal agreed by his predecessor Barack Obama is not strong enough, and that Iran can be pressed by new sanctions into signing a tougher deal.
Pompeo thanked Switzerland, which serves as the "protecting power" for the United States in Iran, for looking after Americans detained there. "I think that's very smart of them and I think there's a possibility for that to happen also".
On Friday, the United Nations' nuclear watchdog reported that Iran may be in violation of limits on the number of advanced centrifuges it can use.
Pompeo was in Switzerland on the second leg after Germany of a four-nation tour of Europe in which he is both trying to calm nerves and stressing that the U.S. will defend itself and not relent in raising pressure on Iran with economic sanctions.
