Iran has not requested a meeting with US President Donald Trump, foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Friday, according to the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).

A foreign news agency reported that Iran requested such a meeting during the United Nations General Assembly which began this week, citing US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, according to IRNA.

IRNA did not identify the foreign news agency.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is scheduled to address the General Assembly next week, according to Iranian state media.
