No Rouhani-Obama meeting planned in New York: Iranian official


Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani has no plans to meet with his US counterpart, Barack Obama, on the sidelines of the 69th annual session of the UN General Assembly, spokesman of the Iranian administration says.
According to Press TV, Mohammad-Baqer Nobakht on Wednesday said that President Rouhani will be leaving for New York to participate in the meeting of world leaders for the second time since taking office in August 2013.
The president is reportedly expected to address the event on September 25.
