Iran has rejected a potential meeting with President Trump ahead of the UN General Assembly this week. On Monday, the country’s Foreign Ministry spokesman, Seyyed Abbas Mousavi, announced that Iranian President Hassan Rouhani will not meet with President Trump in New York on the sidelines of the conference.The official said “such a meeting is not on the agenda nor will it happen.” Tehran has long-rejected holding talks with Washington, while the country remains subject to U.S. sanctions.In this photo released by the official website of the office of the Iranian Presidency, President Hassan Rouhani heads a cabinet meeting in Tehran, Iran, Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2019.

However, President Trump took to Twitter to clear up confusion about the conditions surrounding possible talks.

The Fake News is saying that I am willing to meet with Iran, “No Conditions.” That is an incorrect statement (as usual!).
