(JNS) Iran said this week that President Hassan Rouhani will not meet with U.S. President Donald Trump next week at the U.N. General Assembly, even though Washington has repeatedly stated that it is open to negotiating with Tehran without preconditions. Of course, it would come amid crippling U.S. sanctions on the regime since the United States withdrew in May 2018 from the 2015 nuclear deal.

“Neither is such an event [Trump-Rouhani meeting in New York] on our agenda, nor will it happen,” said Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Abbas Mousavi on state TV. “Such a meeting will not take place.”
