Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Saturday dismissed the possibility for talks between Iranian and US officials on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly meeting in New York next month.
Asked by Tasnim News Agency on the likelihood of a meeting with US officials, including secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, Zarif said, “No such meeting is scheduled. We have announced our position on several occasions.” 
President Hassan Rouhani rejected a US call for talks without preconditions last Monday, hours before Washington imposed new sanctions on Iran in line with President Donald Trump’s decision to pull out of a 2015 agreement over Iran’s nuclear program.
“About the recent offer by Trump, our official position has been announced both by the president and myself. The Americans lack honesty,” Zarif said.
