Obama not due to meet Iran’s Rouhani but open to it: U.S. official

NEW YORK (Reuters) – U.S. President Barack Obama is not scheduled to meet Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in New York during the United Nations General Assembly next week, though the U.S. leader remains open to such a meeting, a senior U.S. official said on Thursday.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is likely to hold bilateral talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Tehran’s nuclear program and other issues on the sidelines of the annual gathering of world leaders at U.N. headquarters, the official said on condition of anonymity.
