Zarif: No plans for meeting with US at UNGA

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Saturday there are no plans for a meeting with his United States counterpart at the United Nations General Assembly, Tasnim reported.

"No, no such meeting is planned. We have repeatedly announced our position," Zarif explained when asked if he would be meeting with US officials, including Mike Pompeo, in New York this September.

Earlier this month, US President Donald Trump reimposed sanctions on the Islamic Republic following Washington's withdrawal from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.
