A semi-official Iranian news agency is quoting an aide to the country’s president as saying that he doesn’t see “any reason” for talks between Donald Trump and Hassan Rouhani at the next United Nations General Assembly.

Majid Takht-e Ravanchi, a member of the presidency’s political bureau, told the semi-official ISNA news agency on Friday that Iranians have no expectations from Trump after he pulled America out of the nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers.

Ravanchi told ISNA: “I do not see any reason for talks between Rouhani and Trump.”

He also added that Iranians have no expectations from Trump after the US president in May pulled America out of the nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers.

After the first batch of US sanctions on the Islamic Republic entered into force on Tuesday morning, a website affiliated to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei said on Wednesday that there was nothing for Tehran to worry about.

Khamenei said in one of his speeches in the past weeks, but published a day after the sanctions came into effect: “Do not worry at all about our situation, no one can do anything.” READ FULL STORY
