And is frankly also -- we discussed the possibility of a three-way deal instead of a two-way deal," the reported Trump as saying.

Trump said that he has already spoken to China.

"And China, I've already spoken to them. They very much would like to be a part of that deal. In fact, during the trade talks, we started talking about that," Trump said.

The US stated that the talks would first start between the US and and would be later joined by China.

We're going to probably start up something very shortly between and ourselves, maybe to start off. And I think China will be added down the road. We'll be talking about nonproliferation. We'll be talking about a nuclear deal of some kind. And I think it will be a very comprehensive one, he said.
