July 18, 2018

TEHRAN – Presidential chief of staff Mahmoud Vaezi announced on Wednesday that President Hassan Rouhani had received eight requests from his American counterpart, Donald Trump, for a meeting.

Speaking to reporters after a cabinet meeting, Vaezi said Trump’s requests were made during President Rouhani’s visit to New York for a United Nations General Assembly meeting in September 2017, Tasnim reported.

Back in September 2013, Rouhani and former U.S. President Barack Obama talked over the phone during the 68th annual session of the UN General Assembly. It was the highest-level contact between the two countries in more than three decades.
