U.S. issues visa for Iran’s Rouhani

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The United States has issued visas allowing Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif to travel to New York for the annual gathering of world leaders at the United Nations next week, Iran’s U.N. mission said

There was doubt as to whether a visa would be issued.

US President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that “if it was up to” him, he would allow Rouhani and his foreign minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, to come, but US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo suggested earlier in the day that the Iranian delegation should be denied visas.

The delegation includes Iran’s top diplomat Mohammad Javad Zarif, who was the subject of US sanctions on July 31.
