TEHRAN, Iran (AP)
— Iran’s international ministry says that
Iranian President Hbadan Rouhani turned down a gathering with
President Donald Trump throughout his go to to New York to attend the
United Nations Common Meeting in September.
The Sunday report by the semi-official ILNA information company quotes
ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi as saying “an intention was
expressed by the American aspect that was not accredited by President
Rouhani,” in reference to the alleged badembly request.
In 2013, then U.S. President Barack Obama and Rouhani spoke by
phone, the highest-level contact between the 2 nations in
a long time, prompting an outcry from Iranian hardliners.
Since then there was no such communication between Tehran
and Washington, which formally severed diplomatic ties in 1979.
