A member of delegation accompanying Islamic Republic of Iran President Hassan Rohani during his recent visit to New York in response to IRNA's correspondent question about the possibility of a meeting between the two sides said that the two sides have welcomed in principle holding a dialogue, IRNA reported.

Referring to the fact that the content and effectiveness of this meeting has been paid heed by the two sides said that the two sides have decided to prepare the necessary grounds for constructive talks on the nuclear issue in an appropriate period of time and at different levels.

The track record of differences and misunderstandings between Iran and the US has been lengthy and it seems the settlement of the inter alia problems needs time and suitable prerequisites.

President Rohani will meet and hold talks with the Austrian and French presidents, the Pakistani and Fiji prime ministers and the German foreign minister on the sidelines of the 68th UN General Assembly meeting.

In the meetings, the sides will discuss bilateral relations and international issues.
On the second day of his stay, President Rohani will be the 7th president to address the UNGA meeting.

Among other programs on President Rohani's agenda are an interview with CNN and meetings with outstanding personalities and American Muslim leaders.

The president's speech at the UNGA will be broadcast live from the first channel of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB), the IRIB News Network, the IRIB External Service, the IRIB Al-Alam TV, Press TV, Hispan TV and Jam-e Jam TV.
