Rouhani Declines to Meet Obama at UN


hasan-rouhani-iranPresident Barack Obama and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani did not meet at the UN on Tuesday, senior administration officials said.

The White House had offered to have “an encounter” between the two leaders on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, but Iranian officials ultimately declined. U.S. and Iranian officials had been discussing the possibility of an Obama-Rouhani meeting for days, an official said. Ultimately, though, “it was clear that it was too complicated for them.”
