Hassan Rouhani’s UNGA Presence Confirmed

President Hassan Rouhani will attend the United.ons General Assembly later this month, a senior official said Monday, denying reports of disagreement within the administration over the issue. 
"There is no difference of opinion between the Foreign Ministry and the president or between Mr. Zarif and Mr. Rouhani," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi told a press briefing in Tehran, ISNA reported. 
He was asked if there is a lack of consensus between the president and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on who should represent Iran at the annual gathering of world leaders in New York. 
Qasemi said the president's attendance will provide Iran  a "significant opportunity" to reiterate its policies and views through diplomatic means.
